Abu Darwish Mosque 360° virtual tour
Abu Darwish (or Darweesh) mosque was built at the top of Jebel Al-Ashrafiyeh in 1961. Commissioned by King Hussein and Mustafa Jakazi, this is an unmistakable building with its alternating layers of black and white stone. It can be a perfect sunset spot and offers stunning views of the city.
1. When to see
Non-muslims are generally not allowed inside. During our visit in August 2011, Taraweeh prayers (evening prayers in Ramadan) were going on that added a unique atmosphere to the place.
