Description

The Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque is a major tourist draw for the Lebanese capital Beirut.  It is an imposingly beautiful Sunni mosque located in Martyrs' Square in downtown BeirutMartyrs’ square itself is an enigmatic enough space and this writer recommends it as one of the first places to head to on arrival to orient yourself within this vibrant and lively city.  The mosque is capped by two bright blue domes and surrounded by four massive towers at the corners of the building. 

If it may look impressive during the daytime with all the distractions that entails, it should truly be seen at night when the staff light it dramatically from below with spotlights.  The effect is awe inspiring, which I guess is one reason why temples such as this are constructed in the first place.

It was built between 2002 and 2007 by the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who was buried beside it.  It was inaugurated by his son Saad Hariri on October 17, 2008.  According to the architect, Azmi Fakhuri, the blue-domed mosque has an Ottoman inspiration, copying the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul.
