    Known as the Cyprus Turkish Islamic Community of Victoria, the organisation has had a history in Richmond, Clifton Hill, and then relocating to Ballarat Road, Sunshine in 1985.

    Commonly referred to as the 'Sunshine Mosque' these days, it is the biggest Mosque in Victoria, and it has extended its services to cater for ladies, elderly and youth groups.

    The Sunshine Mosque did not achieve its status within Victoria very easily, instead it endured some tough days and required extensive financial assistance from the local community. The whole project was managed by the late Mr Hasan Dellal, who had spent many hours to say the least coordinating its development.

    Today the Sunshine Mosque represents an achievement and a gift to the wider Australian community by the Turkish Cypriot community. To Muslims it is a place of worship and a meeting place, to non-Muslims it is a gift of Ottoman architecture which can be admired as they pass by the Ring Road to and from the city of Melbourne.
