this is the most beautiful architecture and internal décor I have seen in a building so far. the very high ceiling, big chandeliers and the typography all over the place looks just fascinating.

The Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque is a sunni mosque located in Martyrs' Square in downtown Beirut, Lebanon. It was built between 2002 and 2007 by the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who was buried beside it. It was inaugurated by his son Saad Hariri on October 17, 2008.

According to the architect, Azmi Fakhuri, the blue-domed mosque has an Ottoman inspiration, copying the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul.

Beautiful mosque in Downtown, Beirut. Stands out... and looks especially charming when viwed from between the streets. Even more beautiful with the lighting at night.

This mosque was planned in the 1950's and was only finished in 2005 after Late Prime Minister Rafic Hariri donated and personally supervised the construction until he was assasinated just a couple of hundred meters away from it, and was later burried just next to it. It was built in a style that reflects the history of Beirut City that is influenced by Roman, Arabic, Ottoman, and Modern Architecture. The interior is beautiful and reflects genuine Beiruty culture. Muslims should definitely visit and pray and this mosque and non-muslims are most welcome to take a tour and spend some time and visit the Mosque library and other facilities. The mosque is a historical landmark today because it witnessed the many demonstration in 2005 after the assasination of PM Rafic Hariri that led to the collapse of the Government imposed by the Syrian regime and then the dramatic and sudden withdrawal of Syrian Troops from Beirut after 30 years of occupation. Martyr's square just at the steps of the mosque is a witness of the Lebanese civil war and then the war-end and the massive reconstruction process of Beirut down town. Al Ameen mosque is a new landmark of Beirut City but somehow it seems to have witnessed it all.
