This paper aims to study Ogelbek mosque, which is considered to be one of the most important Mamluk mosques in the city of Aleppo (Syria). The paper made a descriptive and analytical study of the surviving architectural elements, decorations, and inscriptions of the studied mosque. This mosque was subjected to many renewal works after its construction; all of these works were documented in this study. The paper studied also the endowments which were allocated to the mosque by its founder, in addition to the Ottoman endowments. This paper is considered to be a documentation study to the mosque especially after the destruction which occurred to the whole Syrian monuments during the current events of the Syrian revolution. Many figures and plates are included in this study and they were published for the first time, noting that all the plates were taken by the author in July 2010.
