As Salam Mosque / Mezquita As Salam

    This is the first mosque built in Chile. Its construction  had started in 1988 and it   finished in 1996.  The small but growing  Chilean muslim community has 5 centers of praying and reunion ( mosques and cultural places) and recently historians have started to undercover the  influenced of muslims in early Chilean history although the first  islamic immigration  to  Chile was registered in 1856 during the  beginning of the great immigration wave from  The Ottoman Empire Territories (Palestinian, Jordan,Lebanon and Syria).
