The Khusruwiyah Mosque (Arabic: جامع الخسروية‎) is a mosque complex in Aleppo, Syria. It is located southeast of the Citadel. The mosque was commissioned by Khusraw [Hüsrev] Pasha while he was governor of Aleppo under Sultan Suleiman I. It was designed by the renowned court architect Mimar Sinan.[1]

The mosque was almost entirely destroyed by the armed opposition during the Battle of Aleppo in summer 2014.
