In 2012 a replica of the Selimiye Mosque which can be found in Turkey or more commonly referred to as the blue mosque in South Africa was opened in the blossoming suburb of Midrand. The complex not only houses this magnificent architectural beauty but also has within its premises a gallery containing famous Turkish landmarks, a boulevard with shops and restaurants selling authentic Turkish treats and eats, and a school that was established and is currently headed by the Turkish community. Being able to take a capacity of nearly 6000 occupants, this mosque has become the hub for religious and secular activities and is to date the largest mosque in the southern hemisphere.
