Omayyad Mosque, Damascus: 79 reviews and 227 photos
We were early and almost alone to visit this lovely place.
This beautiful mosque is a holy place for the Syrians.
The 8th-century Great Mosque of the Umayyades is one of the most spectacular mosques in the Arab world, built on the site of an Assyrian sanctuary.
It's on the Unesco World Cultral Heritage List.
There are wonderful mosaics and wall paintings outside. The inside is nothing spectacular
