We met up with Kim's parents again in Damascus [Damascus-travel-guide-1184988] where we showed them the Umayyad mosque where Prophet Yahya (pbuh) (aka John the Baptist) is buried ... not sure if it is the whole body as he was beheaded by King Herod. It is also where some believe Prophet Isa (pbuh) (aka Jesus) will descend (via the Minaret) on Judgement day.
