The land size is three hectare in total with a huge castle looking building in the middle of the block. Local community calls this place as “The Castle”. May Allah make this Ahmadiyya Centre a real castle of Islam and Ahmadiyyat. Ameen

The history of this place dates back to nearly 30 years ago, when an amusement park called Leisureland Fair  was established on this site over an area of about 200 acres with a steam train which would run between 5 Km away the  car park and the amusement park itself. About 15 years ago, it was divided into hectare blocks and the area was re-zoned as “Low Density Residential Zone”.

Ahmadiyya Centre’s property consists of three blocks of a hector each, and its total area  is a bit over 7 and half acres. The building of this Centre was used to be a Reception Hall of the amusement park. The hall had a formal sitting arrangement for almost 2000 people.
