Mushabbak church - Syria - perfectly preserved 5th century church

I paid two visits to this church, after the second I decided to put the pictures in one gallery. Earlier they were in a gallery Dead cities near St. Simeon, still in existence but smaller. To follow me in my 2009 footsteps go there after the current gallery, then move on to St. Simon church complex.

Quoting Ross Burns quoting "as noted in Butler's survey at the turn of the last century "one of the most perfectly preserved of all the basilica churches of Northern Syria and one that seems typical of the ecclesiastical architecture of the third quarter of the fifth century in this province. The replacing of the fallen stones of the gables and a restoration of its wooden roofs, are all that would be required to make it a practical house of worship."

I must rearrange the pictures. Some captions may refer to the earlier place in another gallery. Also you may jump in and out of cloudy and cloudless weather, the result of the two occasions I took the pictures.
