If you come to Damascus without to see this Mosque you didn't see anything !!! Not only because of the amazing decoration but because of the amazing history on it during the time of the Hittites, Romans, Christians until the Muslims !!!

Beautiful place to visit in the center of the old city of Damascus, avoid the visit on Friday as the Souk around is close and the access to the mosque are restricted
