Hammam at al-Janad mosque

Masjid al- Janad al-Kabir

Al-Janad mosque vies with the Great Mosque of Sana'a for title of the oldest Mosque in the country. This mosque is named after Mu'adh al-Janad who was sent to Yemen in 631AD by the Prophet Mohammed as a missionary. He died in Jordan - his tomb is in the Jordan Valley which I visited.
