[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's undoubted that Omayyad Mosque is absolutely the most important embodiment that represents Damascus. It's built on a sacred ground which was occupied by temples of different religions, that's why the history of the mosque itself represents the whole history of Damascus.

Moreover, Omayyad Mosque takes a special position in the history of the mosque itself and represents the history of architecture, particularly the Islamic architectural techniques, due to its special distinction, hugeness and luxurious ornamentations, paintings and mosaic which decorate the walls of the mosque forming some great coordinated masterpieces.

The Omayyad Mosque is considered as on of the most important architectural achievements during the early stages of the Islamic state.
