Al-Azem Palace

Al-Qaymariya, Souq Al-Bzourieh, Damascus, Syria
The Al-Azem Palace is an outstanding example of rich Damascene mansions.

It was built by the Ottoman Governor for Damascus Asaad Pasha Al-Azem in the middle of the 18th century as his personal house.

The palace remained occupied by Al-Azem family until the 1920s when the French authorities turned it into the Institute of Oriental Studies.

Today, the palace serves as a museum for local folklore.
