During the extension of the Mosque of Córdoba in 976 under the Spanish Umayyad Caliph al-Hakam II, this ribbed dome was erected over the mihrab, which indicates the direction of prayer. Entirely covered with glass and gold mosaics, its unique form was probably meant to recall a dome in the Umayyad mosque of Damascus, as were the mosaics, which were said to have been produced by a workman sent by the Byzantine emperor in Constantinople.
