This place gives me an amazing feeling every time I visit it, specially when the music is on or artists plays their instruments the relaxing music, and when they exhibit Art Works such as paintings, sculptures, designs, photographs and much more it gives a really inspiration with these things in this place. Never forget those feelings when I'm there :)

Very impressive khan in the ancient souq, the places caravans would load and unload. The hole in the roof allowed to collect rain water.

Situated in the heart of the Spice market Bzouria this "Inn"is where travellers used to arrive in Damascus. The lodging rooms are upstairs with a wonderful view of the round decorated ceiling. There are often art exhibitions going on there as well. It closes very early around 330pm.
