The main building looks onto a courtyard, across from the galleries and prayer hall. The prayer hall is divided into 11 naves, each covered by a double sloping roof.

Ketchaoua Mosque in Algiers
Name: Ketchaoua Mosque
City: Algeria
Year: 1612
Descriptions:

Ketchaoua Mosque in AgeriaThe Ketchaoua Mosque has always been a religious site, but has changed faces a few times over the years. In 1612, the Ketchaoua Mosque was constructed and flourished as a mosque until 1845. After being known as the Cathedral of St Philippe for a number of years, the building was again converted into a mosque in 1962. Fortunately, the structure and breathtaking architecture has remained in tact, and can still be marveled at today. The Ketchaoua Mosque has become one of the best known attractions in the city of Algiers.

Visitors to Algiers will find the Ketchaoua Mosque at the end of the Casbah and it is a building that is not easily missed. The first feature that immediately strikes visitors with fascination is the twenty three step flight of stairs that lead to the mosque entrance. Though seemingly intimidating, the breathtaking portico that is decorated in magnificent designs and its black marble columns are unmistakable and stunning features. What makes the Ketchaoua Mosque extremely intriguing is the combination of Moorish and Byzantine architectural styles. The interior of the mosque is filled with stunning arcades, white marble columns, beautiful chambers, minarets and ceilings that display unique Moorish plaster work.
