9/41.- Alexandria, terbana mosque


Situated in al-Anfushi, just before entering the Suq district, at the corner of Terbana street and Suq el-Tabakheen street, one finds this interesting little mosque, the Terbana Mosque.

The Terbana Mosque is one of the few remaining ancient mosques in Alexandria, it was built in 1677. The most interesting things to visit in this mosque are: its entrance (with the two colors bricks), the two huge granite columns with Corinthian capitals and the Mehrab, a corner where Muslims find the right direction to pray to the Mecca.

Past the Terbana Mosque, sits the wonderful Abu el-Abbas Mosque ...
