Pinsteps. Turkish mosque

El Jariine Mosque was the main mosque of Turkish Haifa. It was built in honor of the victory of the Turkish admiral Hasan Pasha over the rebellious Bedouin ruler of Akko - Dar el Omar in 1775. But what is noticeable today and has become the hallmark of the lower city is the clock tower, which was added to the mosque at the end of the 19th century. Such clock towers were built in various cities of the Turkish Empire to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the reign of Sultan Abd El Hamid. There is such a tower in Jaffa, Akko and Safed, and in Jerusalem it stood in front of the Jafa gate, but was dismantled. Haifa's Turkish heritage has left iconic dishes such as hummus, falafel and burekas. They will be discussed further.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?
