Really beautiful building off the beaten track, near the Armenian quarter. We didn't go inside (don't think non Muslims are allowed) but sat in the courtyard outside watching the world go by. Worth seeking out

Very nice mosque, but a bit difficult to get in and have a look. Building work was going on when we visited but will definitely be back to have a proper look inside.

I didn't get to see the inside but the outside pictures make up for it. It is a bit more worn out than how it is seen on google images but it is still very beautiful on the outside. It is a bit of a hike to get to the mosque but you can always take a cab as well.

A very unusual and beautiful Mosque set literally in the heart of Amman with the bustling markets and busy roads around it, it can be daunting to go to the Mosque due to the wreck less drivers but once at the Mosque it is very safe and the inside and feel of the Mosque is like any other Mosque in...

It may not be easy to get to but it is well worth the trip. Take a taxi. It is a delightful example of Muslim architecture and stands out in this monochromatic city. After taking many photos walk to the sweet shop on the corner and gorge on delicious local treats. Bring home a tin of them for your friends.

Our guide arranged for us to visit inside the mosque and we had an opportunity to talk to the sheikh with our guide acting as an interpreter. I believe they are more willing to do so to allay fears and misunderstanding as a result of ISIS which has created tourist scares throughout the Middle East. The sheikh was very gracious... More

Abo darwish mosque is eye catching even from the citadel and up close, it is stunning. It is difficult to get up there and you risk being caught in traffic for which there is no way out but waiting for it to move. Therefore taxis will be reluctant to go up there but it is worth the trip.

The mosque is unique with black and white painting on its walls. It's located on the hill side, where you can watch the city from here. I came there on Friday (after Jumah pray) and the door is locked. it's too bad, I could not see how it is inside.
