Great Mosque of Gaza

Great Mosque of Gaza

Great Mosque of Gaza, also known as the Great Omari Mosque, is the largest and oldest mosque in the Gaza Strip, Palestine. The location was originally a site of an ancient Philistine temple that was used later by the Byzantines to erect a church in the 5th century AD. After the Muslim conquest in the 7th century AD, it was transformed into a mosque. The mosque was reconstructed several times by Mamluks and Ottomans in 13th and 16th centuries AD.
