دمشق‎ Damascus - from Sinan Pasha Mosque to Midan

The "to Midan" part refers to a walk from the Sinan Pasha Mosque (see another gallery) to an area called Midan. The first part contains some very fine buildings as well as shots of a large graveyard. Then you enter the Midan proper, an area that may well be swinging when the restaurants start their business. Here also there are many fine buildings, mostly mosques or mausoleums. Midan (field) was an exercise field (Midan al-Khasa) and later served as a place to congregate pilgrim caravans that were about to depart for Mecca. Due to this association it became a favorite burial zone. Then it gets complicated, as I added pictures from a 2010 walk that partly overlapped with the later part of the first walk. The 2010 pictures I put in reverse order to give the impression I extended my original tour. You will see what I mean on the map view.

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.
