The mosque with a minaret at the Neustädter Havelbucht was built to cover steam engines. In 1841 King Frederick Wilhelm IV instructed the architect Persius to adapt Moorish architecture. At the time of the construction, the mosque was the highest building in the area and could be excellently spotted from the terrace of Sanssouci Palace.

The steam engine, hidden in the mosque, was constructed by August Borsig and it used to be the most powerful steam engine with an output equalling 81.4 horsepower at that time. The steam engine pumped the water from the River Havel all the way up to Ruinenberg Hill. From there the water gardens and the main fountain in front of Sanssouci Palace could be fed with water.

The historic steam engine at the mosque survived. But its task was taken over by modern electrical pumps installed in the historical mosque too.

The steam engine building is commonly closed to the public except for special events. Groups may request a private guided tour.
