Built in 1323 AD, this mosque also contained a small madrassa (school). It is located just north of the city centre by the Orontes river. Although the structure was built during the Mamluke period, its architecture does not exhibit the signature style of the said dynasty. In fact, it is more typical of local architecture, built with white stone and a scattering of black basalt pieces. It has a white ribbed dome and no real minaret (did one collapse, perhaps?). Amusingly, the speaker phones are instead placed on a fake metal minaret (see photo).
