The small Ammar mosque in Happy Valley was re-built after World War II adjacent to the Muslim cemetery to offer Janazah (Funeral) prayers but also accommodated the needs of the five daily prayers as demand grew. It acted as a religious, cultural and communal focus for a number of Hong Kong Muslims in addition to the Shelley Street mosque.
