Al-Jazzar Mosque is named after the Ottoman governer Ahmad Pasha al-Jazzar (“The butcher”), and was deseigned by him.

Completed in 1781, the mosque is imitating the “Hagia Sofia” building in Istanbul, and is built over the ruins of the “Santa Croce” church from the time of the Crusaders.

Al-Jazzar and his son are buried in the courtyard next to the building.
