Btw, this is how it looks at present.

Here is a picture of the interior of the mosque (or one of the mosques on this site)

And this is how it looked in 1906.

It's history:

The enclosure was made into a mosque during the reign of Umar bin Khattab.  Palestine came under Muslim rule in that period.  As I understand, it's a huge area and consists of more than one mosque.

Considered to be the fourth holiest site in Islam.   The basic structure is said to be built in 1500 BC. It's said that the massive stones of the walls built without mortar were done by the Jinn who used to work for Prophet Solomon.   It has been renovated by successive rulers.   Formerly it had 4 square minarets of which only 2 remain at present.

The cenotaphs of the Patriarchs (pbut) are richly decorated and covered with green tapestries embroidered with Qur'anic verses. They are believed to stand exactly over the burial place of the Patriarchs.

Prophet Joseph's tomb is also said to be in this site, probably in the south corner of the enclosure.  The photo below shows the area of Joseph's tomb.

 The wall surrounding the structure as an enclosure was supposed to have been built by the Jewish king Herod.

And the biggest tragedy!   After Zionist occupation of the West Bank, Al-Haram Al-Ibrahimi has also been occupied by the Zions and is under their tight security.  Photo below.
