Plaza Blanca, New Mexico

On Dar al Islam property, Plaza Blanca (also known as the White Place) is a beautiful slot canyon, well known for its picturesque western views and mystical desert beauty.

Registered visitors are welcome to hike and enjoy the beauty of this wonderful place. See below to register for the gate access code.

Because of its fragile rock formation, soil and vegetations, it is necessary to walk lightly on the land.  Because the rock formations crumble easily, please follow existing trails & pick up trash in the area. 

Please keep your pets on a leash at all times.

Photography and Movies:
There is no professional art or photography of any kind allowed at Plaza Blanca without a signed agreement with Dar al Islam. 

Workshops and Tours:
Photo / art workshops and tours are allowed at Plaza Blanca with permission from Dar al Islam.

For any activities other than admiring the views in this natural canyon, or for workshops, tours, or commercial photography & film, contact the Dar al Islam office on the mosque mesa, or call us at (505) 685-4515, or email us at
