Al-Askari Mosque

One of the oldest mosques in the south, it was reportedly built in 800 A.D., and is composed of two sections, an old one and a newer. The old section comprises a room surmounted by a dome with four mihrabs in the four corners, which makes it unique. Above the entrance is a plaque that identifies the name of the founder as Ali Bin Saadeddine Fakhreddine.
