Auburn Gallipoli Mosque

The Auburn Gallipoli Mosque is one of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks and is a place of worship for the Australian Turkish community.

On arrival, one of the most striking features of the mosque is the enormous white dome, bordered by towering minarets on both sides. This classical Ottoman design explains in part the mosque’s history and its critical role in present-day Sydney.

Auburn Gallipoli Mosque, Facts, History, Tours, Address & Contact, Sydney

The mosque was built by architects from Turkey using imported marble and even painted following Turkish designs. So, it’s little wonder that Turkish Australians mainly use the mosque.

It is also important to mention that the mosque’s name is attributed to the long-lasting legacy of the Gallipoli Campaign during the First World War. This has since played a significant role in the history of both countries. This is best captured by a plaque on the wall that reads, “The Auburn Gallipoli Mosque reflects the shared legacy of Australian society and the main community behind the construction of the mosque, the Australian Turkish Muslim Community.”

The real beauty of this architectural masterpiece, and undoubtedly Sydney’s most impressive mosque, is its intricate design. The white pearl vault stands out against the various stained glass windows, while the carpets available are made in Turkey and designed explicitly for prayers in the mosque.

Visitors are welcome to tour the Auburn Gallipoli Mosque, but the dress code must be observed in honour of this place of worship. Visitors are expected to dress modestly and remove their shoes on arrival at the mosque.

Tours are available all week except Fridays, when more than 1,000 Muslims gather for Friday prayers. Visitors can make online bookings for the tour at the cost of $5 per person. Payments can be made online or by cash or bank cheque on the day of the mosque tour.
