Large ottoman style mosque, the surrounding buildings are collapsed. But they are trying to fix/renovate it. It's a sad and interesting view of the damaged street from here. You get to see closely how the houses were damage from the war. The mosque is fine and it's beautiful.i recommend to have this in your itinerary

The second most important mosque in Syria. includes the tomb of Khalid ibn Al-walid, the companion of prophet Mohammad and one of the greatest warlords in history. His war techniques helped spreading Islam out of the Arabic peninsula defeating both Romans and Persians. lots of stories to tell about him!

The mosque has a great architecture built during the Ottoman empire era with the local black volcanic stones that Homs city is famous for.

The mosque is also surrounded by many souqs (Markets) that Syria is famous for. You can step by and buy unique Textile, mozaic, souvenirs... etc

it is a Must visit in homs.

You should missed out the visit of Khalid Mosque in Homs to see part of Islamic history during the old eras and to pray there and enjoy all stores distributed near the mosque

The Mosque is really old and has not been renovated which gives it its touch. Ask for a guide to tell the stories of the mosque - you will be surprised - trust me - I wont spoil it for you!

It's -or was- very beautiful mosque. It's sad that it got partially destroyed in the war but it's being restored now and hopefully it'll be great once again soon.

Khalid Ibn al-Walid was originally a Meccan general, and fought against the Muslims. Later on it was him that, after the defeat of Muslims by Byzantines in the battle of Mu'ta, where the adopted son of Muhammad died, protected the Muslim army from being annihilated. And, soon, he became the general who defeated Byzantines and conquered Syria. He was called The Sword of God. Still, his relationship with the caliph 'Umar was a strained one.
He was buried in Homs (ancient Emesa), and his grave remains in this mosque, but the mosque itself is a recent, Ottoman one.

The mosque is big and impressive. I guess some people may like it, I do not like this style myself. Still, it's not bad, and host the tomb of one of the most important Arab generals in history.
