Some great sites to see. Beware of the merchants selling poorly made products and a lot of the supposed Middle East product is Made in China! Pickpockets everywhere,be safe and know where your valuables are at all times.

The Christian quarter is full of shops selling Christian items and Jewish. All quarters sell items for all religions. Negotiate prices or you will get ripped off.
