- What’s On
The Great Mosque was built by the Artukid Turks in the 12th century, and there are a number of distinctive mosques and medresses. The Monastery of St. Gabriel (Dayro d-Mor Gabriel) on the east side of the town is a working community of monks and nuns. Founded in AD397, it is the oldest surviving Syriac Orthodox monastery. Until 1932 when it was moved to Damascus, the seat of the patriarch of the Syriac Orthodox church was the Saffron Monastery (Deyr ul-Zafaran) on the southeast side of the city.
