“Very impressive decoration”

Reviewed December 11, 2008

This is the burial place of Roqayya the young daughter of Hussein so it is a Shia Mosque expensively restored by Iran.
The atmosphere was one of quietness and serenity. No one paid much attention to two foreign ladies walking round with the black hooded abiyas!
The decoration is something I've never seen before. Glass mosaic on a lot of the ceilings, and colourful patterns on other ceilings amongst other things.

If you go down the shopping lane that goes behind the Omayad Mosque, on its left, passing by the Caligraphy Museum you should find it.
It is also very near to the Old Vine Hotel.
