Abstract:
This mosque is considered to be one of the most important surviving Mamluk monuments in Aleppo, it contains many elements that still remain from the time of its construction, including the main façade, main entrance, minaret, open courtyard, and the main portico, etc. The mosque was renewed many times in the Ottoman period and a lot of extensions were added to it. This paper will study the mosque through a description and analytical study of its parts and architectural elements, in addition to determining the accurate date of the construction and highlight the renewal works that occurred, especially in the Ottoman period. All the attached maps and figures (except Map no.1, Figs. 2 & 3) have been developed by the author. Also, all the photographs have been taken by the researcher.
