Al-Tahham Mosque

Al-Tahham Mosque stands on top of a souk in the Al-Haddadine neighborhood, and is accessed by a staircase. The date of its foundation and its builder are not known, but the styling of the mosque indicates Mamluk origin.

 

Al-Tahham Mosque is distinguished by a short but richly decorated minaret, known as the prince’s minaret. The minaret rises over a pointed arch portal on the north side with four pyramidal buttresses supporting its base, and four arched windows, each with a carved stone balcony street.

 

In the courtyard of the mosque there are four huge granite pillars surmounted by four Corinthian capitals holding the dome up, similar to Tainal Mosque.
