Located on Shelley Street, Central, Jamia Mosque is the oldest mosque in Hong Kong, which could accommodate a congregation of around 400 people. It was built in the 1910s with donations from Haji Mohamed Essack Elias, a Bombay merchant, to replace the old mosque on the same site.

Jamia Mosque is constructed in concrete and bricks with rich Islamic mosque architectural features. It is historically significant as it has witnessed the growth of the Muslim community in Hong Kong. It remains an important place of worship and gathering for local Muslims.

Jamia Mosque was declared a monument in 2022.
