Masjid Jenin Al Kabir

Mosque in Jenin

With its unmissable green roof, Masjid Jenin Al Kabir (Jenin Great Mosque), was built in 1566 on the orders of Fatima Khatun, then wife of the Governor of Damascus. Even given the West Bank's huge roster of impressive mosques, Jenin's is worth a visit both for its Ottoman architecture and as a centrepiece to the Old City.
