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. And here is the bonus: it is now an art museum / cafe, making it one of the few places in the souk where you can get away from the crowds and sit down and have a coffee or tea. This little oasis is on one of the streets running north and south, connecting the Hamidiya Souk with Medhat Pasha street, just south of the Azem Palace.

We have just visited the Khan in the Old City of Damascus and it was great. A great place to just sit and rest inside a great building. Very relaxing place in the hectic Old City of Damascus!!

if you want to see an ancient hotel this is the one..among more than a hunderd other khans in many syrian cities this is the best preserved and restored, and very centrally located one minute walk from the Omayyad mosque.

ibuilt 1750 and a fine example of Ottoman style islamic architecture with large imposing structure, numerous domes and many many rooms for travellers in 2 floors, a central courtyard and a fountain.

I visited it during my trip in June when it hadan exhibition in the first floor for a very small fee (less than 2 dollars if I am not mistaken).

dont miss it when you are in Old Damscus

Fascinating and beautiful place. Like everything else in Syria, its sadly seen the worst of life lately - but the history of the place is absorbing and palpable. Shame it has graffiti etc on it :(

This Khan in the spice souk in the Old City of Damascus a great place to just sit and relax and admire the ceilings, fountain and building itself. A small cafe inside provides refreshments and the entrance fee of SYP 400 (US 80 cents) is well worth it

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 :)
