An amazing big historical mosque that I love to keep visiting and praying there. It became so beautiful after it's restoration years back, it's still conserving an excellent condition. It's located in the heart of the old city with several doors that a couple of them leads directly to the old souk. It's a must visit..

It a Memluk Masjid in Tripoli and considered the biggest in the city, where the hair of prophet Mohammad SAAW is put in public during the holly month of Ramadan.

The place is amazing in winter, entrance is allowed for non Muslims men, but for women they need to wear a scarf.

If you can find a guide this is very well worth doing. We were lucky and were shown around for some time. Would certainly recommend.

Built since more than 700 years ago, this had been the central mosque in the city for centuries.. It is surrounded by Souks(markets) and many hidden gems. It has 4 gates and a solar clock. You might be lucky to find a local tour guide who may give you valuable info about its history and architecture (not all guides are... More

Once we arrived, doors were locked. As it comed out, thankfully... we were "found" by Ali Khawaja - a bit crazy but fantastic local man who guided as through the whole city (including the mosque!).

Going through the souk - when its raining - was confusing as signs are rare and the maps we had seemed in-accurate. We ended up asking people for directions and eventually found it. We went around Asr prayer time and were... More

It's the oldest and the largest mosque in Tripoli. It has four gates, three courtyards and a central ablution fountain with a small prayer area. The building is quite impressive. Shortly a must see when you are visiting Tripoli
