It is a great place specially at night, it ends at Khan El Khalily where you can start another round. It used to be opened for footsteps only but now they reopened it again for cars and motorbikes which makes your visit a little bit uncomfortable since the street is too narrow for vehicles to cross on.

This street is like stepping back in time, if you love Damascus and old cities like it and have an interest in history, traditional bazaars and unforgettable walks, this is the place to go.

the street it self, the shops, the coffee shops.. everything there is really good... it is a rural place, it is not a fancy street but it is really historical where you can discover the fine Islamic art!
