Omayyad Mosque, Damascus: 79 reviews and 227 photos

...and then there's the stunning courtyard!

While looking at the historical mosque from inside the man prayer hall, I said, whre's the large shiny open air marbled plaza I saw on pictures? I followed the people getting out of a gate, and there it was -- I'm silently hearing children choir singing "Allelujah" , NO! it's just my mind. The shiny flooring that reflects the images of people stepping on it is so neat, you have to walk on you socks -- he, after all it's a not an easy task for the staff cleaning th huge courtyard.
