Tripoli - The Taynal Mosque



This important mosque was built in 1336 by Saif ed-Dine Taynâl on the site of a ruined Crusader Carmelite church.


The Taynal Mosque

The adjoining domed mausoleum holds the tomb of the founder. Some elements of the original structure were re-used in the mosque, for example, the two rows of granite columns with late Roman capitals which stand in the middle of the first prayer hall.

The entrance of the second prayer hall is a unique example of the architectural decoration in Tripoli during the Mamluke era.
