A short distance north of Azem Palace is the splendid riverside An-Nuri Mosque, built by the Muslim commander Nureddin, uncle of Saladin, in the late 12th century. If you cross the bridge beside the mosque, you have a very picturesque view of the river and three norias, which are, from east to west, Al-Kaylaniyya , As-Sahuniyya and Al-Jabariyya .
