A beautiful mosque (MASJID) in the center of Algiers, nice surround area too. The mosque is built in the Ottoman era. The French, when colonized Algeria, turned it into a church, then after the French occupation was out in 1962, it became a masjid again. Amazing architecture, a must visit... Visit around prayer times (5 times a day; just write in a search engine: prayer times algiers, and you should know when to go). Wear decent clothing as this is like every other place of worship.

The key to getting to see the inside of this mosque (and most other mosques in Algiers): Time your visit at the time of prayers. They will otherwise close the mosque in between prayer times to keep the homeless and troublemakers out. So get there just before the call to prayer because they do close up shop shortly after the last people are finished praying.

The mosque is beautiful and reflective of an Ottoman-era mosque. The Turkish government renovated this mosque and it shows; a little like inside the Diyanet Center in Maryland.

Women: as a matter of etiquette, do dress modestly and carry a scarf to drape over your hair if you wish to go in. A little respectful good manners go a long way.

Very old Ottoman Mosque, newly renovated by Turkish Government. It has Mediterranean view and good outside look. I was not able to check inside of it.

This important mosque just below the Casbah and in a bustling market area, has had several incarnations, and was at one time a church. Visitors should be able to enter after morning prayers if modestly dressed, but I was not there at the right time.

A typically Turkish style mosque of ancient times. Near the heart of Algiers, it is a very wellknown spot located near the Casbah district. It has been restored and it has regained its beauty, I think.

It was under reparation so I only saw it from outside, so it was pity. Could be really nice if it was without rack? and behind fence.

This certainly splendid mosque is currently under restoration by the Turkish (!) government and there is scaffolding anywhere around.
The interior is closed for the restauration work entirely.
