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.
