The small Islamic white-washed mosque (weli) still can be seen on the top of the mountain is from the mid-14th century originally said to be built above the tomb of Aaron and most probably on an earlier structure. A tablet with Arabic inscription over the entrance states that the shrine was built by Mohammad, son of Calaon, Sultan of Egypt at his father's command, in the year 739 of the Hegira (about 1363) and that it was restored later around 1495.
