  Mosque of Sayyida Zeinab
by MM212

The shrine of Sayyida Zeinab, the revered grand daughter of the Prophet Mohammed is located at her namesake mosque. The mosque has existed on this site since the 12th century, but it was rebuilt several times. Most of the current structure dates from the 19th century. This is an important pilgrimage site for Moslems, so tourists are not allowed in the interior.
