Al-Omari Mosque, Beirut
(4.6/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
Feel the intimate atmosphere of worship at Al-Omari Mosque. The former Byzentine church dedicated to Saint John has stood since the 12th century, but Mamluks transformed it in 1291, declaring it a mosque. Built over the site of the roman imperial baths, the Roman style (vaults, stone columns, and capitals) dominates the architecture, even though the minaret and entrance in the Mamluk style stand as a historical testaments. Admire the intricate Ottoman detailing that decorates the mosque walls. Put Al-Omari Mosque into our Beirut trip generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Beirut.
