Al-Qaimariya Street begins by the ruins of the Roman Gate just east of the Omayyad Mosque in damascus and runs eastwards towards the Christian Quarter.   A fascinating street, paved with cobblestones and full of little shop that produce and sell syrian arts and crafts, it dates back to the hellenistic period when it used to connect the Temple of Zeus/Haddad (later to become Temple of Jupiter) with the agora, the forum in roman times.

During the roman domination, a columnade was built all along the street and some of these columns, now broken and chipped, can still be admired during our walk through this fascinating road.  Shopping here can be a very pleasant experience, being a lot less crowded than the actual souqs, while the merchandise is of excellent quality, sometimes even superior to the souqs themselves.
