Syria: Damascus – 1001 Door in the Old
Old Damascus is fascinating with perhaps every door to every building looking antique and unique. Many are beautifully carved and adorned with classic Damascus black and white stonework. Many have elaborate metalwork features, and locks and “knocking hands”. Endless variety of doors made the area even more attractive. From the first sight, it looked like people were taking part in a “best door contest”. Remember the fairytale “Thousand and one night”? Damascus reflects the Middle Eastern fairytale of thousand and one door.
