    The Al-Hamidiyah Souq (Arabic: سوق الحميدية‎) is the largest and the central souk in Syria, located inside the old walled city of Damascus next to the Citadel. The souq is about 600 metres (2,000 ft) long [1][2] and 15 metres (49 ft) wide,[1] and is covered by a 10-metre (33 ft) tall metal arch. [1] The souq starts at Al-Thawra street and ends at the Umayyad Mosque plaza, and the ancient Roman Temple of Jupiter stands 40 feet tall in its entrance.
    In this place you can see all of syrian traditional arts like tarditional sews , carpets ..etc

    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.

    Damascus is one of the greatest places ! It is sad the country is now torn apart! I visited the souq before the war when I was in Damascus.

    It is a mini version of the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, I love this type of places and this one was no different! It is a shame Damascus is now only history!

    I recall narrow covered passages full of shops, mostly with clothes etc, but I also bought some very nice wooden boxes covered with pearl mass, which were relatively expensive, but worth the price.

    There were some buildings next to it, like small mosques.

    I visited it in 2005-6 and 2009.
