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 !!!

Damascus Omeyad mosque is for sure the most magic and lovely from all mosques in the world. The syrian people is friendly and helpful.You can feel their hospitality even inside the mosque.

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
