  • Few know this place, an old 16th-century mosque with a large garden and portico yet it's a five-minute walk from the Cham palace hotel. It is a gathering place for artists and its handicrafts shops are among the best in the entire Syrian capital for quality and cost and to find antiques. We spend time willingly especially in the evening when the artisans are not at work and are available to illustrate their works, paintings and objects in embroidered glass and the original necklaces of silver jewelry and processed stones purchased on each trip to friends and family. Next to the garden is a small military museum with planes and cars of the 50s/60s. Date entered to publish
