Jama' Tajdid
Jama' Tajdid, Jerba, Tunisia

Jama' Tajdid, Jerba, Tunisia

Of all small mosques around Jerba, the one of Tajdid is among the most likely to see in brochures or on wall posters in the hotels. The main reason is the nice setting: Out in the fields with many trees around it.
The mosque itself is in full use, and is closed to visitors. Even entering the open air courtyards appear to be beyond what the local guards can accept.
It takes a little bit of work to locate it, as it is a bit off the main road, and only dirt tracks lead to it.
