Hama Water Wheel – The City of Hama, famous for it’s water wheel on the river Orontes, built in the 7th century. One of the largest had a diameter of about 20 metres and its rim was divided into 120 compartments. The picture shows one of the 17 water wheels survived to the 21st century. What I don’t know is whether this is surviving the civil war.
