“So old, so nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

One of the oldest mosques, one of the most important sights in Tripoli, trust me it is a must see. You will enjoy the architecture even if you are not muslim ...

“Holy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

All mosques in Tripoli are used and still working... the ruins inside it are from mixed times (egyptian, arabic, roman stones).
One advice: girls need to wear head scarfs to enter mosques.

“Calm Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

One of the few mosques open to non-Muslims is worth visiting in the ancient city of Tripoli.
The 700 year old mosque sits in quiet gardens, a relatively plain exterior, topped by its green domes. Though small you will enjoy the unique architecture and calm ambience. The Immam will explain the mosque’s history, and point out important features of the mosque.
