Jama' Mezraya, Jerba, Tunisia

This mosque lies right before Midoun and serves a larger audience than most other small mosques of Jerba. It is a mix of Jerba mosque structures and a standard Tunisian minaret.
As I visited I asked about the minaret, but none of the locals could tell me whether it belonged to the original structures or was a newer addition. I'm inclined to believe that it is fairly new compared to the rest of the mosque.
