Taynal Mosque

  • religious site

Tripoli, Tripoli district

Built in 1336 in the north, in Tripoli, on the site of what was once the Crusader Carmelite Church, Taynal Mosque is an exquisite example of Mamluk architecture. Situated in the middle of a delightful grassy courtyard with a large marble fountain and lined with palm trees, this oblong sandstone structure has four 16-sided green domes. The mosque contains the mausoleum, a small building which houses tombs, of its founder, Emir Saifeddine Taynal. Some of the columns used in the building were taken from Roman buildings.
