Where to pray Tarawih/Eid in Gwangju?

Ramadan Kareem to all!

As a fellow resident of Jeollanamdo's Gwangju, other Muslim friends of mine and I have also asked the same question a couple of times.

Whether this place existed or not, the most important part of our Ramadan nights is to

pray; alone or not. However, as all Muslims know, nothing beats Salatul-Jama'a for good deeds. Especially for Tarawih or Salatul Eid.

There's something different about the unity we feel when our brothers and sisters gather together, even more so in a foreign country.

This place is more of a "Mussala." Recommended to us by our Malaysian male friend

who's stopped by before. It's not as big as mosques in Muslim countries but trust me; you'll be surprised that it is quite spacious!

Here's the location:

P.S: You're in luck if you go to Chonnam National University as it merely takes 15 minutes by bus to arrive there.

Also, there's a small Halal mart on the first floor of the building! How accessible is that?

I hope you enjoyed today's article; see you in the next one!
