The White Mosque is one of the symbols of Nazareth. In the eighteenth century, during the reign of El Jazar, the Muslim ruler El Fahome was sent from Acre to Nazareth. At this time, Nazareth was almost entirely a Christian town. From the very first day of his rule, tolerance reigned in the city. White color symbolizes understanding, respect, and justice in Islam. For this reason, the mosque became known as the White Mosque. El Fahome was buried in the mosque, and his tomb exists in the mosque to this day.
