The Grand Husseini Mosque

A short stroll through the throbbing streets of the heart of downtown Amman and the glittering famous gold souq is The Grand Husseini Mosque. This Ottoman style mosque was rebuilt using striking pink-and-white stone in 1924 by the late King Abdullah I on the site of an ancient mosque built originally in 640 AD by Omar ibn Al-Khattab the 2nd Caliph of Islam and is thought to be the site of the Cathedral of Philadelphia.
