Built in 1906, Hamoudi Mosque stands as one of the oldest mosques in the city. Its simple yet captivating design reflects the much older Abbasid style, with white and green walls, stone carvings, massive wooden doors, and yellow arched windows. Although located at a busy crossroads and near a small market, the mosque serves as an active sanctuary with a capacity of 1,000 worshipers.
