Nice Mosque

A nice old mosque near the beach in Tel Aviv. Not far from it is the Carmelit bus station and the Carmelit market.

The architecture of the mosque and the surrounding area bring you back in time for a glimpse of the past. We highly recommend checking it out; so bring your camera. :-) Happy Traveling, ExploreTraveler

It is the oldest extant mosque in Jaffa. Very useful for fishermen and sailors due to its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea.

mosques can be beautiful , but this one is a waste of time for tourists. Skip it and go to the beach across the street or to mosques in Jaffa near bye if you really want to see a mosque.

This mosque is anything but unique. It is not accessible to the public, nor is it maintained. Skip it.
