Damascus sept 2009 5103.jpg

This is the main courtyard. The first big building to the right is the reception hall (qa'a), which unfortunately was closed. Further to the right is an iwan (or liwan: a reception area off a courtyard with a high arch opening). We will get there shortly. Straight on and to the left there are several other buildings containing objects and sometimes mannequins dressed as a group, representing some social occasion.
