The Great London Mosque in Brick Lane
The Great London Mosque in Brick Lane
On the corner of Fournier Street, this was originally founded as a church for Huguenots who fled to London to avoid persecution in France. The chapel was later used by Methodists and in the late 19th century, when Whitechapel became the centre of the Jewish East End, it became the Machzike Adass, also known as the Spitalfields Great Synagogue. With the dispersal of the Jewish community and a new influx of Bengali immigrants, it became the Jamme Masjid or Great London Mosque in 1976.
The sundial at the top is dated 1743 with the words UMBRA SUMUS above the hours.
