Right next to the Omayyad mosque lies the Mausoleum of the Muslim leader Saladin during the crusades. A journey back in history and a must see

Having the tombs of Saladin and Sheikh Saied El Bouti in the same place gave the place an even added value. It is so peaceful and quiet there away from the hustle and bustle of the city

This is not the most fascinating of sights but it's worth going to see if you happen to be in the vicinity.

The building certainly is very nice, but if you know the man to whom this mausoleum belongs, you'll have a unique feeling while visiting the monument.

When I came to Damascus, I really wanted to visit Salahdin's mausoleum. Many of the locals don't know that it is silently tucked next to the great Ummayah mosque. Upon entering the place, it was amazing. The way it has been preserved is exceptional. One can even see roman and greek columns from civilizations ago outside the mausoleum which make... More

If you have read all of the old Arab and Crusader romances' about Saladin et al, you will find standing at the modest tomb of Saladin an incredible experience. Can this really be the resting place of the greatest man who lived in the world almost a thousand years ago?

The Saladin Mausoleum located a short walk from the Omayyad Mosque is a must see while sightseeing in the Old Town of Damascus. Amazing to see it is still well maintained during the current Civil War.

The mausoleum itself is not extravagant or mind blowing, however, if you know the history of Salah Al-din as a fighter and leader, standing next to the grave is quite an experience. Next to mausoleum are graves of first muslim turk pilots who died in separate crashes. Totally worth a visit while in Damascus. The ticket for entrance is less... More
