Omayyad Mosque, Damascus: 79 reviews and 227 photos

I walk along the Hamediyeh Souq and ended up in the grand entrance of the Umayyad Mosque where there are lots of activities going on - people selling stuff and food. The entrance fronting the end of the souq is closed so I went on the right side and it's open. So that's where people are entering the mosque. I think most of the entrances of the grand mosque are closed during the weekdays, so you'd better check the side entrances. I went there on my last day at the city and that was Friday and all the entrances are open.
