Grand Al Omari Mosque, Beirut Overview

It is the largest mosque in Beirut.

Head downtown to the Al-Omari Mosque, for a startling insight into antiquty. A microcosm of Lebanese history, the mosque sits on a site of ancient ruins of a Crusader church, which in turn was a Byzantine church when built, that was itself built on the foundations of a Roman temple to Jupiter. In 1291, the Mamluks æestablished the elegant sandstone mosque that stands today. But its history lives on in this warm, intimate sanctuary: Mamluk, Ottoman and Greek inscriptions, along with its cross-shaped plan and Byzantine architectural features, betray BeirutÍs multifaceted past.
