great job you’ve done here!
Awwwww, i saw this mosque in Damascus.. That’s really amazing mosque.. It was a church, then muslims made a mosque next to that church. Yet when it was time of Azan, christians used to ring their bell intended. So muslims bought the church part too and made a complete mosque..Interesting that still the little pool for baptism is right in the middle of mosque.. lol
Tomb of Yahya prophet is in mosque too.. Beautiful.. I liked..
Thanks leila and welcome to the blog.
Shahrzad, o wow, so you have been there. I did not know about the history of the mosque so thanks for the info.
