Peel Street Mosque situated in Canal Parade, Maria Street, Cardiff; was the first purpose built mosque in Wales. Built in 1947. In 1988 it was demolished and redeveloped. The original mosque is illustrated in the adjacent Multicultural Crossroads building, 1 Maria Street, and other descriptions exist in records of the Docks area. It was a white painted rendered building with a small dome and minarets, looked charming and traditional.

The new, brick built building has a name stone inscribed:
'established 1935 constructed 1947'

Considerable redevelopment in the area generally has taken place; OS NRG reference relates to the new building, it is not necessarily exactly the same site.
