New Masjid Construction

New Masjid ConstructionDuring the early part of ‘80s members of Cham Muslim community from Cambodia relocated here and established a temporary structure that has served well beyond its time and capacity. The Cham community donated a 2-acre piece of prime real estate to build a more permanent Islamic Center to serve the growing needs of the greater Olympia area and vicinity. The new center will be used for religious, educational as well as social activities for the Muslim community of Olympia and its surrounding cities.
