Masjid Ras al-'Amud

Masjid Ras al-'Amud (مسجد رأس العامود), in Arabic meaning 'the head of the column', also known as the Muhammad al-Fateh Mosque (مسجد محمد الفاتح), is located in the heart of the Ras al-Amud neighborhood, east of the Old City of Jerusalem, on the main historic road that connects Jerusalem and Jericho. The mosque is adjacent to the Jewish Cemetery, at the foot of Mount of Olives. The Ras al-'Amoud mosque serves the people of Silwan and some of the surrounding neighborhoods.
