The White Mosque.
This magnificent mosque was built in 1785 as part of the construction boom in the city of Nazareth during those times, in an attempt to make the place look respectable as befits its historical status. The turret, with its characteristic Ottoman appearance, is high enough to be prominent and easily seen from many sites in the city.
Nowadays the mosque serves as a house of prayer, has a museum exhibiting documents from its various periods in history, and conveys a message, as implied by its name, of peace, purity, and mutual respect between peoples.
