The Umayyad Mosque - Full 3D Relief - 120cm Length x 75cm Height
The Umayyad Mosque, also known as the Great Mosque of Damascus, located in the old city of Damascus - Syria, is one of the largest and oldest mosques in the world. Built between 705 and 715 CE by the Umayyad Caliph al-Walid I. Adjacent to the mosque is the tomb of one of the most illustrious Muslim leaders, Saladin, who recaptured Jerusalem from the Crusaders.
The mosque was noted for its rich composition of marble paneling and its extensive gold mosaics of vegetal motifs, covering some 4000 square meters (43,000 sq ft), likely the largest in the world. Islamic belief holds that the mosque will be the place where Prophet Isa (Jesus) will return before the End of Days.
