Al-Sayda Ruqaiya Shrine

Al-Amara Al-Jouaniya, Beside Bab Al-Faradis, Damascus, Syria
This modern oriental style mosque is the product of a mass renovation project that took place in 1990 on the original mosque that houses the shrine of Lady Ruqaiya the daughter of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mouhamed.

After her father Hussein’s death in 681, Lady Ruqaiya came to Damascus, which was the capital of the Umayyad Empire by then, and she died there.
Historical Periods: Umayyads
