The Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, Syria was built around 1,300 years ago, between 706 and 715 AD and is one of the oldest mosques in the world.
After the Arab conquest of Damascus, the mosque was erected on the site of a Christian basilica dedicated to John the Baptist (Yahya). Inside the mosque is a shrine which reputedly still holds the head of John the Baptist.

your family name reminds me of the famous zimbabwean goalkeeper of FC Liverpool Grobelaar.
ok, forget the joke. I like the soft light reflections on the marble floor. I'm pretty shocked by the almost empty yard. When I visited it, it was overcrowded

A image very clean with beauty reflections, the sky is fantastic because contrast with the tower and the floor. For the next time maybe will be better if you include all the tower.

Hi there JP,
Great shot, I love the warm lighting and the detail. One small observation, I would have cropped the pic a bit tighter, just excluding the tower,
