The minbar, a short flight of steps used as a platform by a preacher to deliver sermons in the Umayyad Mosque. Damascus. Syria. The monumental Umayyad Mosque stands in the heart of Damascus with its architectural, religious and historical significance. Dating from the 8th century, and remarkably built in only 10 years the Great Mosque occupies the entire area that once housed temenos of an enormous Roman temple of Jupiter.
