Lonely Planet review for Terbana Mosque
The beautiful little Terbana Mosque stands at the junction of Sharia Fransa and Souq al-Kharateen. This entire quarter, known as Gumruk, stands on land that was underwater in the Middle Ages. Late-17th-century builders managed to incorporate bits of ancient Alexandria in the mosque's structure, reusing two classical columns to support the minaret. The red-and-black painted brickwork on the façade is typical of the Delta-style architecture.
