What people are saying:

Casson Hill (Arabic: جبل قاسيون‎, Jabal Qsiyn) is a mountain in Damascus, Syria. There are a series of restaurants on the mountain that overlook the city. As the city expands, the hillside of the mountain has been built into the city. Its highest point is 1,151 meters (3,776 feet). Since the beginning of Syria's civil war, the Kasong Mountain has been heavily occupied by Syrian government forces. The hillside of the Kasong Mountain has a legendary cave. The first man was said to have been inhabited at that time; And there were all kinds of stories about Ibrahim, where Jesus prayed. The Middle Ages Arab history books called this place where Cain killed Abraham. For years it was considered a place where prayers were promised immediately, especially in times of drought, when the rulers of Damascus climbed to the caves to pray for rain.
