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 :)

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.

This is the largest Khan in Damascus, built in the 19th century, it features the alternating black and white stone architecture so familiar in Damascus, great vaulted domes, a center piece fountain, etc. Overall, its a very impressive place.
