Photographer's Note

The Omayyad Mosque is one of the most important Islamic buildings built on the place where there was a temple built already 900 BC. Later a church was built there and after the Muslims came a mosque was built, first just a smaller one but then a grand impressive mosque was built. Much has been destroyed during the years and much of what you see today is rebuilt after a big fire 1893.

Tourists has to enter through the north gate. Women (and men in shorts) are required to wear a gown that is provided at a small fee. You must also take your shoes off.
