Universel Murad Hassil in Katwijk

The Universel Murad Hassil is one of the three international Universal Sufi Shrines and is located in Katwijk aan Zee in the Netherlands. It is also labelled as a temple.

In 1969, a structure designed by the Dutch architect S.J. of Embden was built on the place where in 1922, during the summer school, Inayat Khan reported having a 'spiritual experience' and proclaimed the place holy.

Every year, the 'Sufi summer school' takes place in this shrine, and many Universal Sufis from around the world visit the shrine each summer.

The Universal Worship Service, brotherhood days and other meetings take place in the shrine as well as several traditional music concerts.

The building is a simple square in basis and the cupola is golden.
