Really worth visiting. The colour, splendour, size, design - all awe inspiring and beautiful. The domes are spectacular looking! Built in Ottoman architecture style, although not from the era. A must visit when in Beirut!

It feels like you’re in Turkey- beautiful interior. Right beside a church. Shows the beauty of co-existence. Free use of abaya/ cover ups for both men and women offered from outside the main door.
