    The Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque is a Sunni mosque in the center of Lebanon’s capital. The cornerstone of the building was laid in November 2002 and the mosque was inaugurated in 2008. In the 19th century, a zawiya, or prayer corner, was built on this site and named after Sheikh Abu Nasr Al-Yafi.

    Lebanon elected a new president on Monday, ending a two-and-a-half-year political crisis. However, one aspect of the country has nothing to do with politics —the astonishing beauty of the various sights of the ancient eastern Mediterranean republic.
