دمشق‎ Damascus pictures - Khans in the Old City

Using the formidable “The monuments of Syria” guidebook by Ross Burns I visited the khans (defined in that book as "combined warehouse and hostel for merchants", on my Turkey travels I come across them as "hans" or more exactly hanlar) in the Old City of Damascus during a stay in September 2009. Of course I took the occasional shot of the surrounding souks or a building in a side street. Still I here show essentially the route I took and the khans I visited (some were closed, so I could only show the outside). They are not all or great value, but I enjoyed the tour immensely, if only for the fun of locating the more hidden ones, climbing stairs, touring upper floors and in general really "being inside old Damascus".

I have several Damascus galleries, organized as follows: Museum, Tekkiye, northwest, Citadel and near, north of souq. The old town is split up in: Umayyad mosque, Hamidiye souq, rest of souq, Azem Palace in souq, khans in souq, Christian area and some more, near Sinan Pasha. Further: Salihiye, to Midan, Hijaz and east.
