Omayyad Mosque, Damascus: 79 reviews and 227 photos
The courtyard is big and in one way made me think of Piazza San Marco in Venice. There are quite a lot of pigeons. Around the courtyard people are sitting eating or just relaxing. It is a peaceful place. There is a big beautiful gold mosaic on one of the walls.
Beside the courtyard is the shrine of Husseini. Another shrine, the one of John the Baptist, is in the big prayer hall.
