The Sidna Ali Mosque (Arabic: مسجد سيدنا علي‎, Masjid Sidna Ali; Hebrew: מסגד סידנא עלי‎, Misgad Sidna Ali) is a Muslim place of worship located in the depopulated village of Al-Haram on the beach in the northern part of Herzliya in Israel.

History

The mosque was originally a 13th century Mamluk construction built in honour of one of Saladins lieutenants who fought bravely against the Crusaders and died in a battle on the hill on which the mosque now stands. His shrine is now housed within the building.

It now serves both at as a mosque and as a religious school.[1]

Architecture

During the turn of the century it was rebuilt as a caravanserai and went through restorations in 1992.[1][2]
