Al-Jiser Al-Abyad Neighbourhood

Arnous, Damascus, Syria
Al-Jiser Al-Abyad is an early 20th century Damascene neighbourhood. It acquired its name, meaning the “White Bridge”, from a 12th century bridge that used to cross River Barada in that area.

The Seljuq Period bridge that connected the Old City with the Salihiya Quarter does not exist anymore, but its name has survived.
Historical Periods: Contemporary Syria, Seljuqs
