    Mohammad Al-Amin mosque is masterful. Located on the place des Martyrs, she defensive its 4 towers and its blue dome majestically into the sky. The outside is of great beauty, inside equally with its magnificent chandeliers and lavish decorations. Shoes banned and, especially for the ladies, a gandoura with CAP's clothing before entering. Very nice place.
