“Huge”

Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque
Ranked #3 of 99 things to do in Beirut
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 28, 2013

A mosque is a place of worship for followers of Islam. The Arabic word masjid literally means a place of prostration. The word "mosque" in English refers to all types of buildings dedicated for Islamic worship.
Located in Martyrs' Square in downtown Beirut, this mosque is new and was built between 2002 and 2007.
The blue-domed mosque has an Ottoman inspiration unfortunately not typically Lebanese copying the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul.
By night the mosque is radius and colourful.

Rafik Hariri built the mosque and his grave is near the mosque. The mosque is quite nice from inside and people can go in to pray or visit.

Al Amin Mosque is a beautiful monument in downtown Beirut. Built like the Suleymania Mosque of Istanbul, the stone architecture is beautiful. Inside the hall, the calligraphy, the ornamentation of walls and roof are a sight. On Fridays, the parking does become an issue.
