Grand Omari Mosque (Saida)

Facing the northern tip of Sidon's harbor, the Omari Mosque is said to be one of the finest examples of Islamic religious architecture of the 13th century. Named after the second orthodox caliph, Omar Ben el-Khattab, its architecture is a mix of Crusader and Mamluk styles. It was subject to many restorations and enlargements during the Ottoman period and more recently. It’s open to non-Muslims outside prayer times.
