The mausoleum itself is not extravagant or mind blowing, however, if you know the history of Salah Al-din as a fighter and leader, standing next to the grave is quite an experience. Next to mausoleum are graves of first muslim turk pilots who died in separate crashes. Totally worth a visit while in Damascus. The ticket for entrance is less... More

Small but atmospheric mausoleum next to the Omayyad Mosque. Built in the 12th century, restored in the 19th. The (older looking) coffin holds the actual body, the marble tomb was a gift from a visiting German emperor.

One was wooden and the other marble. The original older one was preferred but kept both in Mausoleum, side by side. I visited here in April, 2011 just as... More

Situated adjacent to the Umayyad Mosque, the Mausoleum is recognisable by it's distinctive red dome. The interior is unpretentious and dignified - perfectly appropriate for this man I have learnt so much about. Born in Tikrit in 1137 Saladin (also known as Salah ad-Din Yusuf) joined the Military aged 15 and eventually established himself as a prominent Military leader and... More
