Once we arrived, doors were locked. As it comed out, thankfully... we were "found" by Ali Khawaja - a bit crazy but fantastic local man who guided as through the whole city (including the mosque!).

Ancient mosque, was a Byzantine church, beautiful court yard, be warned doors are open only during prayer time, court yard has also a door from souk side. Sit peacefully and watch the faithful locals come pray and go back to their duties.

Interesting architecture. All mosques are closed outside of prayer times. Note the Mamluk architecture especially the arches.
