This is Abu Radwan / Bahr / Mina mosque build by Mousa Pacha Abu Radwan, The Ottoman wali - Governor - around 1650 and the great grand son of Prince Radwan Ibn Moustafa, the Ottoman governor of large part of the 'modern' middle East.

Prince Radwan father was Kara Shahin Moustafa, the first governor of Sanjak Gaza (from north of Jaffa to Rafah in the south) in 1516.

The Mosque was renovated by UNDP in 1990.

Mousa Pacha was the builder of the great Omari Mosque in Jaffa city and established the huge Abu Radwan family trust, of lands and properties.

My direct grand father Said Moustafa Abu Radwan was 'the Radwan Trust' curator until he died in 1940 in Jaffa.
