The A-Zeituna mosque is a mosque that lies at the center of the ancient city of Akko, and heads towards wide flooring to the south. Probably it is named after the olive trees that according to tradition stood in its yard.Today the mosque has 4 palm trees in its front. The mosque was founded in the mid 18th century and was dedicated to "wakef". The mosque stands on the remains of the Saint Merriam church that was located there back in the crusaders period.
the structure is characterized by two green domes- a big dome that covers the main prayer hall, and a little dome that stands above the secondary hall east of the main hall. This hall is smaller but a little bit higher. The mosque's minaret is located at the south west corner, and entrance to the structure is via a fixed opening to the foothills of it, on the west side of the mosque.
The opening leads to a corridor that ends in an open yard with a fountain. The yard is surrounded from the east, north and west with houses that do not belong to the mosque, and its prayer halls are near it from the south. The main prayer hall is square and is separated from the secondary hall by an arch, and by the south side there are two windows.
