This market is very close to Hamidiyah and the Omyad Mosque and is a fascinating array of spice and herbs shops. You will find some sweets shops also and there is an old traditional "Hammam" located there which is still in use.
A bit further along in the centre of the Market there is an Arabian Inn called "Khan assad Bashar". It is used mainly for Art exhibitons these days. But it was notably the Inn that Lady Jane Digby stayed in when she first arrived in Damascus in the 1800s.
It is beautifully decorated and well worth a visit for a few minutes out of the bustle of the Souq.
