The Meeran Jumma Mosque Built by early the Arab traders of Sri Lanka, who are the ancestral fathers of Sri Lankan Moors. Meeran Jumma Masjid Mosque is an important landmark to the large Muslim community who live within the Fort. 


The area is also called the Old Arab Quarters and though the Mosque is over three hundred years old, it is still very much in use. It is an architecturally beautiful building, which rises majestically with its unrivalled white splendor, amidst the background of the fort. -www.srilankatrips.com
