Wow, that is a suprise! Of the mosques I visited in Jordan, Morocco, Turkey and the Netherlands the part for the women, if they had a part, was always not more than a colourless room. Do you know why it is different in Syria? I am just amazed to see all the chrystallike stuff! Were there any women in there?

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. And blessings of Allah and peace be on our Chief Muhammad, His Prophet, and on his children. O my Allah! (All) praise is for Thee for that which Thou decided upon and resolved in the matter of Thy friends, whom Thou purified for Thyself and Thy religion.

This is the Sayyida Zeinab mosque and it's not for women only, it's split evenly in two for men and women by a low barrier. The two halves are identical. I just posted the exterior and will post a wider interior pic tomorrow.
