I visited this mosque after visiting the Mohammad Al-Ameen Mosque. Clearly, these were built in different times. The Al-Omari mosque is smaller and a little more worn, but beautiful inside. Definitely worth the visit.

An extremely unique and beautiful structure. I loved it. It was so calm and peaceful there. I took a few photographs. It was really lovely because I never imagined a mosque built in such a design.

The mosque is located in the heart of capital Beirut, the building is a piece of art, for those who wants to pray inside the mosque it must have been providing them tranquility and very special spiritual reward. Women should be alerted that their head must be covered when visiting the site.

This is quite a beautiful mosque that used to be a church . It has some lovely inscriptions inside and is a jewel in the crown of historic sites in Beirut.

A great place to visit. Being non-Muslim I was greeted quite happily, given appropriate dress and invited to enter and take photos. No time limit to your stay.
