So small and tucked away we could not find it at first. The ideas of the founder are nobel but the mosque itself I will not visit again.
"Interesting visit to a mosque in Nazareth"

Bottom line, most people visit Nazareth because of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus. It's all about Christianity but this is not a Christian city so it's interesting to visit a mosque. People were friendly...
