If you are visiting the Nativity Church and if you have still time it is interesting to visit the Mosque. If you have to reschedule your program to visit the Mosque it is not worth it. Enjoy!

Very nice Mosque. It's very peaceful and open to all to visit. Separate prayer areas obviously for male and female. Some begging outside which is a problem.

Our guide told us the history of this mosque. It has a prominent location on the grounds donated to Muslims by the Greek Orthodox Church.

To me, the Mosque of Omar stands as a symbol of religious co-existence. Apparently it was built on lands donated by the Greek Orthodox Church to the Muslims, but the most crucial point is that it is the only Muslim shrine of worship in the Old City of Bethlehem.
