An ancient inscription dating to the 14th century recently discovered in Jaffa hints at the existence of a previously unknown magnificent mosque. The inscription was discovered during restoration work on a sebil (a public water fountain found in regional Muslim architecture) dating to the Mamluk period. The fountain is located next to the wall of the Mahmoudiya Mosque on the city's Ruslan Street.
