Neighborhood: Jaffa
Overview

This mosque was once the centre of the Manishiye neighborhood, which was largely destroyed in 1948. Consequently the mosque, surrounded by glass towers and busy roads, is a rather incongruous site. It was recently renovated with the help of State funds. Its most prominent features are a high minaret (which was once used as a snipers' perch) and large dome. There is a large courtyard, which is very accessible. If not a Muslim, the interior should be entered at the visitor's discretion. In any case, shoes must be removed.
