Aleppo Things to Do: 247 reviews and 615 photos
Built by the Ottoman governor, Behram Pasha, in 1583, al-Bahramiya Mosque is yet another example of Ottoman architecture in Aleppo. It has multiple domes and the typical pencil-shaped minaret, which fell in an earthquake and was rebuilt in 1698. The exterior of the mosque, though, is much simpler than other Ottoman mosques in Aleppo. Al-Bahramiya is located in the heart of the souk, next to Madrassa al-Muqaddamiyya, on the main east-west axis of the souk.
UPDATE: In October, 2012, the courtyard entrance suffered some damage in the fight between the government and the Free Syrian Army. Fortunately, based on the Youtube footage I've seen, the main mosque structure seemed intact. Let's hope no further damage occurs.
Directions: On the main thoroughfare in the souk, west of Khan al-Joumruk and the Great Mosque
