A short stroll though Souk al Hamediyya


Souk al Hamediyya is one of Damascus’s most famous landmarks. Throughout the war it has never stopped being the centre of trade and shopping in Syria’s capital. All walks of Syrian life congregate here, and have done so since Roman times. The souk starts at the centre of the modern city and ends at an intact Roman arch and the entrance to the Ummayad Mosque.
