Kufic inscriptions


The second church is in the heart of the village; it is dedicated to Mary and is served by Catholic priests. Architecturally it is similar to the church of St. George and is almost as dilapidated. Both buildings are decorated with Greek inscriptions and friezes of grapes around the doors and windows.

Half-way between the two churches there is some partly excavated arcading with sculptured decoration and Kufic inscriptions.

The black lava stone of which the center of the village is built is relieved by colorful little gardens, while further out extensive vineyards make a pleasant transition between the village and the flat cornlands of the Hauran.
