The Masjid or Mosque
The Answer or Jawab
The two buildings on either side of the mausoleum are in perfect symmetry to each other (there are some minor differences). One building is a working mosque. We didn’t go into that building (but that was okay because the other building is a perfect replica). The other building, the Answer or Jawab, might have been a guest house for important visitors.

Welcome to the Cave Interpretation Centre
In 1970 Ole Sorenson, a Danish mining engineer, and local explorer, Tony Mason, brought the wonders of Harrison’s Cave to light. The Government of Barbados then recognized the potential of the cave as a public amenity and commissioned its development in 1974. The restoration of the cave system was completed in 1980 and the Cave Interpretation Centre was opened to the public in November 1981. Today, interpretive displays feature the geology of Barbados, the formation of its cave system, and the heritage and natural history of Harrison’s Cave.
