Address: Rue Mir Majid Arslane | Downtown Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon
Description:

Located near the shore, just north of the Solidere-Downtown Beirut,...

Located near the shore, just north of the Solidere-Downtown Beirut, al-Majidiya Mosque was once an 18th century Ottoman defensive fort. In 1841, the fort was no longer needed so the structure was turned into a mosque and named after the Ottoman Sultan Abdul-Mejid I. In 1881 and again in 1906, the mosque was enlarged and renovated. Its tall, pencil-shaped minaret is typical of Ottoman mosques, while its shorter minaret is of a more typical Beiruti-Mamluke style. The interior of the mosque has conserved the arches and vaulted ceilings of the Ottoman fort it once was.
