Hassan Bek Mosque

The white mosque.

One of Tel Aviv's - and specifically Jaffa's - most iconic buildings, it was constructed in 1916 during Ottoman rule, using not the more common reddish local stone but rather white limestone, punctuated by colourfully-tinted windows and dominated by a tall minaret reaching for the sky. Over the years it has had a checkered history according to the ebb and flow of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but continues to be a working house of worship, and as such its interior is closed to non-Muslims.
