Al Tahham Mosque

  • religious site

Tripoli, Tripoli district

Located in Tripoli, Al Tahham Mosque stands on top of a souk in the Al Haddadine neighborhood, accessible by a staircase. The date of its foundation and its builder are unknown, but the styling of the mosque indicates a Mamluk period origin. Al Tahham Mosque is distinguished by a short but richly decorated minaret, known as The Prince’s Minaret. It 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.
