Masjid Al-Khanqah al-Salahiyya

The al-Khanqah al-Salahiyya Mosque is located in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.
The mosque is situated on the former palace of the Latin Patriarch. Following the Crusader surrender of Jerusalem to Salah al-Din in 1187, it became a mosque. Its minaret was built in around 1417.

Masjid Umar

The Ayyubid Mosque of Omar in Jerusalem is located opposite the southern courtyard of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Muristan area of the Christian Quarter. According to later documents, after the Siege of Jerusalem in 637 by the Rashidun army under the command of Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah, Patriarch Sophronius refused to surrender except to the Caliph Omar (579-644) himself. Omar travelled to Jerusalem and accepted the surrender.

He then visited the Church of the Resurrection (today better known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre) where Sophronius invited him to pray inside the church, but Omar declined so as not to set a precedent and thereby endanger the church's status as a Christian site.

Masjid Marwani

Solomon's Stables was an underground vaulted space now used as a Muslim prayer hall, some 600 square yards (500 square metres) in area, at the bottom of stairs which lead down from the al-Aqsa Mosque, under the Temple Mount, to the base of the southern wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Solomon's Stables are located under the southeastern corner of the Temple Mount, 12½ metres below the courtyard and feature twelve rows of pillars and arches. In December 1996 the Waqf converted the area into a prayer hall by adding lights and floor tiles, and renamed it the Marwani Prayer Hall.
