Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque
The Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, also referred to as the Blue Mosque or Hariri’s Mosque, is a Sunni mosque located in Martyrs' Square in downtown Beirut, Lebanon. It was built between 2002 and 2007 by the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri who was buried beside it after his assasination. The mosque was inaugurated by his son Saad Hariri on October 17, 2008.
The decorative painting and ornamentation (gilding, calligraphy, patina, stone and wood imitations) were done by artist Harout Bastajian, owner and founder of The Art of Mosques, in 2005.
