The Arab souk in the Muslim Quarter extends from Damascus Gate to the Via Dolorosa. Its many stalls sell spices, pastries, embroidered dresses, sheepskin coats, leather goods, antiquities and other handicrafts,
All reviews via dolorosa damascus gate crowded and noisy grand bazaar in istanbul old city christian sites falafel temple mount israeli soldiers market place few hours holy city western wall shopkeepers tourists muslin aqsa
On the narrow streets there are just shop stalls on both sides and there are stall roofs that prevent day light so it's dark.
The sellers can be rude.
I was ok to stay for couple of nights but would never like to live there.
I was in the Muslim quarter yesterday, and am still shaken. In the distance of 300 meters we were verbally abused by vendors when we did not want to enter their stores or otherwise engage them. Comments from them: “Go back to Germany you Jews”,...More
Entered through Lions Gate and enjoyed walking the narrow streets in the quarter. Be prepared for many sights and sounds as you pass many vendors and stores on your way from site to site. If you're with a group, ensure you pay attention so no...More
This is like the bustle of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, but with a more mixed pot of people. The food, people and the shops are amazing. There's many Christian and Orthodox Jews that go through making it feel like a bygone era where all...More
This is kind of funny and ironic but a lot of the path where Christ travelled flows through here and so it is a must do for the Christian tours. We had some amazing hummus at a muslim restaurant that I also much enjoyed
I was walking alone through the Muslim Quarter in the rainy and cold day in the beginning of january 2018. The arab merchant (he called himself Monir) came over to me, gave an umbrella and pointed me to the roof next to his store to...More
We went to a restaurant in the Muslim quarter,
What a rip-off!!!!
Be very careful where you choose to eat.
No menus with prices, and they charge what they want.
My advice, visit the Muslim quarter, but don't eat at any of the restaurants.
The Muslim quarter is unique in it’s aww and wonder. The smells of coffee, fruit, argila, cinnamon, and tea; fill the air with wonderful aromas. If you are in Israel you should definitely experience this for yourself. It is dirty compared to the other Quarters...More
The Muslim Quarter is a 5* destination on any visit to Jerusalem. You need not buy anything. Just stroll around freely and look at the goods offered in the shops or in the streets. Let yourself not be bothered by the merchants who tell you...More

Well, I'm sitting in a hostel in the Muslim Quarter of Old Jerusalem right now. Been here several days and wandered around the quarter a lot, both day and night time, without any sign of trouble. (I am white British, neither Jewish nor Muslim). Readers of the above review need to be aware that Jews in Jerusalem largely have nothing good to say about the Muslims, and vice versa. I have been told about the above matter whilst here and it is apparent firstly that this was an isolated incident (I am being told about it months later) and secondly that the victim was a local resident, not a tourist (tourists do not carry guns). Incidents of violence, whilst obviously regrettable, can happen in any city in the world. Is it safer in New York? Or Paris?
