The Islamic Center of Golden is a place of congregational prayer that was founded in 1992 by Muslim students and other community members.
As members of the Muslim community grew over the years, the Center moved in 2016 from the small facility on 19th Street to the current, multi-purpose building.
Due to its proximity to Colorado School of Mines, a large number of Muslim international students worship at our Center.
The Islamic Center of Golden strives to serve the religious and educational needs of Muslims in Golden and beyond. It also seeks to help develop a sense of community by becoming active members in our city and state. The Center embraces interfaith dialogue that promotes greater understanding and fosters mutual respect and acceptance of each other as fellow human beings and citizens.

The word Islam means voluntary “Submission” or “Surrender” to the Will of God. It derives from the root word “salam,” meaning peace.
