The front and entrance of the al-Ajami Mosque (Turba Afriduniye), intended as a tomb (turba) and Koran school (madrasa). Itís from 1348 commemorating the Persian merchant Afridun al-Ajami. I did not get in, if I had I would have seen (says The monuments of Syria by Ross Burns) a rare example of the cruciform mosque.
