That place is minber, where he leads the prayer.
Another interesting fact: Those marble or stone stands on each side of the minber could originally turn. If something happens to the mosque's structure (like, say, the foundation has a crack or something), they stop turning (like right now). So it is like warning sytem that the mosque is aging ... 700 years, eh...
