Adelaide Mosque

20 Little Gilbert Street ADELAIDE

State Heritage Place

Built in 1889, with its four minarets added by 1903, the Adelaide Mosque is historically significant as one of the few relics of Afghan immigration to South Australia in the nineteenth century. Camels were first imported in significant numbers in the 1860s and Afghan camel drivers played an important role in the development of outback South Australia.
