Road to Damascus 34 – Qasr ibn Wardan

Description Qasr ibn Wardan

Sundial at Qasr ibn Wardan

Qasr ibn Wardan is a Byzantine Palace way out in the middle of nowhere. I think its near Hama? One of the buildings is an old church and the other is a monastery. We didn’t find it particularly fascinating but it was interesting to be in a church THAT old and one that had been built right when the prophet (s) was born. That stone block in the courtyard with symbols is actually a calendar and the block with a circle thing is an ancient sundial.

  • the architechture on the buildlings is so nice masha Allah. The bricks look so much flater than other buildings.
