دمشق‎ Damascus pictures near Sinan Pasha mosque

On the evening of my second arrival in Damascus, دمشق‎, September 2009, I strolled from the old Hijaz railroad station to the South, then turning left came into an area with a market drawing to a close. In the end I found myself in front of the fine Sinan Paşa Mosque with its close neighbour Madrasa Sibaiye. I was so enchanted by this stroll that I returned next day, when I saw a bit more of these buildings. I decided to start with the pictures of the two mosques, and then pretend we'll start our stroll, which is distorting time, but that is modern life for you.

I cannot get a good map so if people know the names of streets and special buildings, I'll be pleased if they write a comment that I can use for a better caption.

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.
