Souk Sarouja is one of the first inhabited areas that were built outside Old Damascus' Fence. It dates back to the 11th century.

Unfortunately, some parts of this old Market were destroyed and others were neglected by their owners.

  • Unfortunately, other certain areas in the old city of Damascus need to be saved from destruction. Bab Touma is another example. Click here to read the story (Arabic only).
