I would like to put here the comment of anonymous, as it is related directly to information about the mosque.
‘…domed fountain of the Great Mosque of Aleppo, also known as the Umayyad or Zacharia Mosque. Zacharia, [St. John the Baptist’s father] remains were transfered there from the Citadel by the Mamluk Sultan Baibars in the 13th century. St. John, or Yehya is buried in the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus. The fountain was constructed in the year 965 A.D. by Qarghaweh, the servant of Saif al-Dawla al-Hamadani, of the Alawite Dynasty of the Hamadanid of Mosul and Aleppo’
