Framed Print of The Tomb of Saladin - Damascus, Syria
The Tomb of Saladin (Salah ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub) - Damascus, Syria. Saladin was buried in a mausoleum in the garden outside the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, Syria. Seven centuries later, Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany donated a new marble sarcophagus to the mausoleum - pictured on this postcard. Saladin was, however, not placed in it. Instead the mausoleum, which is open to visitors, now has two sarcophagi: one, empty made of marble and the original, which holds Saladin, which is made of wood. The reason why Saladin was not placed in the tomb was most likely respect and a desire to not disturb his body. Date: circa 1910s
