This distinctive black and white mosque, built in 1961 and commissioned by the late King Hussein of Jordan and Mustafa Jakazi is at the top of Jebel Al-Ashrafiyeh, Amman. It is located on a plaza which has some seating areas to relax. You can see wonderful views across Amman from here. The main mosque area inside is only used for the Friday Juma prayer and other day's prayers are done in the area that was originally designed as the wudu washing area, so do not expect a visit inside, but the exterior is amazing.
