"The Umayyad mosque" Aleppo Favorite Tip by dabuwan

Aleppo General: 84 reviews and 92 photos

  Courtyard of the Umayyad Mosque
by dabuwan

Favorite thing: This is one of the largest and oldest mosques in the world. Fortunately, non moslims are allowed to visit and it's really worth it. I went back three times (once each day I stayed in Aleppo) because I didn't get enough of it. It is a beautiful place and you learn a lot about the islamic culture there.
