Grand Husseini Mosque

Located in the heart of downtown Amman near the gold souq is The Grand Husseini Mosque.

This Ottoman style mosque was rebuilt using striking pink-and-white stone in 1924 by the late King Abdullah I on the site of an ancient mosque built originally in 640 AD by Omar ibn Al-Khattab the 2nd Caliph of Islam. This was probably also the site of the Cathedral of Philadelphia.
