An-Nuri Mosque

Lonely Planet review

A little way south of the roundabout at the eastern end of Sharia Shoukri al-Quwatli and tucked down a laneway is the unassuming 20th-century fa├žade of the An-Nuri Mosque, which is actually much older than first appearances might suggest. Just north of the prayer hall, the mosque courtyard contains a curious long, low platform, and an ancient capital is embedded in the western end of the platform.
