Overview
More
Located in the downtown district of Beirut, the Mosque of Emir Munzer Tannoukhi dates from 1620 AD. Although it was built in the Ottoman period, the architectural style is much more traditional Lebanese than Ottoman or even Mamluke. Only the octagonal minaret with muqarnas (stalactite) decorations exhibits a clear Mamluke style. The mosque has a courtyard surrounded by a lofty portico of pointed arches resting on eight grey granite columns, taken from pre-existing Roman structures. In a post-civil war restoration, the mosque's courtyard was covered to shield worshippers from inclement weather.
