Tekkiye Suleimanieh

Al-Hejaz, Damascus, Syria
The Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent commissioned this 16th century building complex.

Tekkiye Suleimanieh used to serve as a school, mosque and a kitchen to distribute food to the pilgrims heading from Anatolia to Mecca.

The building complex was designed by the famous Ottoman architect Sinan, and was built on the site where the palace of the Mamluk Sultan Baibars used to stand before being destroyed by Timurlenk.

Today, Tekkiye Suleimanieh is host to the war museum as well as to a handicraft bazaar.
