The Bo-Kaap ("above the Cape" in Afrikaans) is an area of Cape Town, South Africa formerly known as the Malay Quarter. It is a former racially segregated area, situated on the slopes of Signal Hill above the city centre and is a historical centre of Cape Malay culture in Cape Town. The Nurul Islam Mosque, established in 1844, is located in the area.

Most people know the area as the neighborhood with the colorful houses, but it's really so much more than that. Let me know what you think. And thanks for watching.

It was so amazing getting into the authenticity of the heritage story of this community. Enjoy working with Neil on the stories of people and places for the African Travel Crew YouTube Channel.

Bo Kaap, such an important part of Cape Town. We drive past it often, have visited it many times. What we didn't hear are all the extraordinary stories. Hope this is one of many that I'll hear.
