The famous 1781 mosque is surrounded by a stout wall and is the largest in Israel. Named for the warlord Jazzer Pasha who ran the Galilee in the 18th century it has a large Turkish-style minaret and other features. They charge 10 NIS to walk around the courtyard and take photos and there isn't much more than that

According to the local guide this is the second most important mosque in Israel, after El Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem . Interesting architecture. In the garden, is the tomb of El Jazzar , the famous local muslim leader that defeated Napoleon in 1799. A local guide will explain to you about the place. He will ask for a contribution at the end of the 10 minutes presentation. There is also a small entrance fee of around 10-15 shekel.
In the mosque is kept a hair of the prophet. Interesting place that will show you the basic architecture of a typical mosque.

Lovely Mosque, peaceful- also pleasant gardens and courtyard. The entry outside has beautiful inlaid stone design. Inside is a painted dome and beautiful inlaid stone work around the arches near the ceiling. The grounds and Mosque are closed to public during prayer times. Appropriate dress required for entry

Please remember, like in most spiritual or religious places we all, women and men wear loose clothes and cover our sholders and hair and at least until the knee and this is so that we don't disturb those praying. Every woman knows WE use our hair to seduce, consciously or unconsciously, in that case, let's be respectful and cover our hair :) shoulders and at least until the knees! There is a small fee entrance and some tour guides will answer all your questions for 40 NIS!!! Learn!
