Islamic Center of Golden was founded in 1992 when a group of students and community Muslims felt the need to establish an Islamic place of congregational prayer (also known as a Masjid).
Over the course of the years, the center expanded and served the growing community members. In 2016, the community moved from the old facility on 19th Street to the new multi-purpose building on Ford Street.
Due to it’s close proximity to Colorado School of Mines, the Islamic Center has a large attendance of from Muslim international students pursing higher education.
The Islamic Center aspires to foster tolerance and peace in the local Golden community. God willing, the center will continue to serve the local Muslim population as a center of worship, education and community support.
