If you've never been to a mosque, go look. There are no explanations so bring a book or Google with you. It only costs 10 nis and it IS the second largest mosque in Israel / Palestine. So why not?

If you've never been inside a mosque, this is definitely worth the visit. Much of the architecture is typical of eastern Mediterranean mosques. You can stroll around the gardens where there are an ablution station and a sundial. And you can go into the main...More
