Mosques, Aleppo: 2 reviews and 10 photos
The Madrassa al-Sultaniya was built in 1223 AD by the Ayyubid governor of Aleppo, Sultan al-Aziz. It contains tombs of the governor's family. This Madrassa is located just south of the gateway to the Citadel and is now used solely as a mosque. The interior is simple, but was overly renovated. The mihrab is quite attractive with typical Ayyubid period decorative motifs and two small supporting columns with Corinthian capitals (possibly belonging to an older church?).
UPDATE: This mosque-madrassa was mostly destroyed during the civil war in 2014.
Address: Old Aleppo, Aleppo
Directions: Opposite the south side of the Citadel
