This is the view of the souk from the entrance. It is very long with shops on your right & left side. Next pix: Mr Samir, one of the shop owner that we found later today holding the jubah that I bought. Very nice material & design.

So many things …..  from jubah, table cloth, runners, pillow case … you name it ….. including up-to-date lingarie hehehe

The tudung 2 pieces style. All made in Syria. I bought few pieces. Anyone interested can contact me hehhehe … price negotiable.

Actually the souq entrance is facing the Omayyad mosque where the tomb of the Islam Great Warrior, Saladin (right pix) is located. The Omayyad mosque was built in year 86 hijrah (truly amazing)!
