Tarbana Mosque, one of the most famous mosques in Alexandria, is located on France Street in the Manshiyya section - Al-Gamruk district. It was also named after Hajj Ibrahim Tarbana, who was established in the year 1097 AH - 1685 AD.

It is a hanging mosque - it consists of two floors. Built in the Ottoman style, it is considered the last remaining Ottoman monument in Alexandria. Attached to the mosque are residential rooms, and this was a custom when building mosques in the time of the Ottomans. The basement of the mosque is a collection of commercial money, and the purpose of its existence when building the mosque was to provide financial support for expenses. This model of mosques appeared in Egypt during the Fatimid era. From an architectural point of view, the mosque belongs to a model called the Delta model because it was spread in some cities of the Delta of Egypt during the Ottoman era, especially in the cities of Rashid and Fouh. The most important characteristic of this style is the use of Al-Najour bricks, which are small bricks colored in black and red. They were built in geometrical decorative shapes that adorned the entrances to mosques and homes. The prayer hall in the Terbaneh Mosque takes a rectangular shape and has an area of ​​about 350 square meters.
