“A must see when you are in tripoli”
Review of The Great Mosque

Reviewed January 24, 2013

It's the oldest and the largest mosque in Tripoli. It has four gates, three courtyards and a central ablution fountain with a small prayer area. The building is quite impressive. Shortly a must see when you are visiting Tripoli

I live near this mosque and I love it as i love all the mosques in Tripoli because when the Athan's (prayer call) time comes it's like music they all chant a magnificent synchronized symphony. Maybe because I'm a Muslim but I just love it!

The mosque is situated in the old city... it's a place where you feel that you can see the past and the present actually colliding together... In it you can also find a solar clock!

We were trying to find the way in and ended up just picking a random door where we saw two Western dressed tourists coming out from.

We were conscious that it might be prayer time so it might be disrespectful to just burst in from the wrong door.

We walked in and it was a nice mosque but nothing amazing.

We took a few pictures and before we knew a man came to us and asked us to leave, he mentioned something about coming back later but frankly I didn't see anything that was worth coming back to see later.
