Located some 6,5 kilometres from Larnaka (Larnaca) overlooking the Salt Lake, Hala Sultan Tekke is the grave of Umm Haram, wife of Ouvadas Ibn – as Samiz, a general of Moavias who was the leader of the first Arabic invasion of the island in 649 B.C. She was killed during this campaign, when she fell off the mule carrying her. The Hala Sultan Tekke was built at the place of her death, but the exact date is not known. Some archaeologists believe that the tomb of Umm Haram is a monolithic tomb of the prehistoric period (1700 – 1050 BC). According to one legend, one of the stones covering it is suspended in mid – air.
