Stroll and relax

When some rich restaurateur tried to get this place and make it into a restaurant, while the civil war was raging, people of Damascus defended it and won, managing to keep it open to all of us. It stays a park and a mosque and has a small souk that everybody can enjoy for free. Get some coffee with you and visit.

One of the most important places to visit in Damascus is located in the middle of the city and on the bank of the river. A place that makes you feel the warmth of the ancient past

Wow! Fav Place in Damascus
Jul 2016 • Business
Takiyya is a hidden gem in Damascus. I cannot stop going there ever since I first went a few months ago. Most of the shop keepers are well trained and can communicate in English. It is a brilliant place for buying fine Damascene crafts. The silver jewellery, the rugs, the mosaic are one of a kind. The art galleries are my absolute favourite. The one in the corner next to the mosque is probably my favorite place in the city. The artist and his 2 apprentices are extremely talented and the female apprentice is an extremely sweet person which makes the experience even nicer.

Great Antique market

A bit expensive for Syrians, yet cheap and divers for foreigners, and the handicrafts are amazing and unique. Few shops though.

An unexpected oasis

A fascinating bit of old Damascus right opposite the Four Seasons Hotel. Originally a hospice with a mosque in the Ottoman style, it now has a few handicraft shops but it still exudes an air of peace and tranquillity.

why Takiyya Suleimaniah
it is unique in mixing old style of souk, and nature, and every thing is original. yet it needs more attention from specialized bodies, and there are many ideas to use to revive this place, like old style cafes some street musical performance, that are not resitricted to orintal modes, some street photography or quick portrait paintings, etc...
it has though some old botiques that sell oriental staff and some art shops for painters, but it needs more care and more ideas.
it used to be a place where poor people can come and eat, and even old hourses could be left to eat and kept till they die naturally, once they can not serve. it used to be a place for cats as well, to eat .
Takiyya in Arabic language, means a place that offers those in need free food or free stuff, and it is derived from the word, Itakaa, which literlly means ( you can rely on) whether physically or emotionally. in this case, it is phyiscally, where you can rely on this place for shelter or food, both people and animal.

Simply dismiss the many store owners which are trying to get you into one of their shops and just look at the many sights in this famous souq! Don't forget to look up, as you will be amazed at the lovely architecture.
