Thank you Roger. The flour, both inside and outside the Mosque, are beautiful marble. But inside it is covered with Persian carpets. I wil show a picture of it.

Thanks Lydia. At the time we were a bit reluctant to travel to Syria so shortly after 9/11. But it was a visit to my brother who worked for Shell in Damascus and they would have been very disappointed when we had cancelled the visit. It turned out that there was a big advantage to visit Syria at that time, there were almost no tourists!

Lydia, do you mean that the square is overflooded? No the square consists of polished marble and is like a gigantic mirror!
