The Arab souk in the Muslim Quarter extends from Damascus Gate to the Via Dolorosa. Its many stalls sell spices, pastries, embroidered dresses, sheepskin coats, leather goods, antiquities and other handicrafts,
The Muslim Quarter is a 5* destination on any visit to Jerusalem. You need not buy anything. Just stroll around freely and look at the goods offered in the shops or in the streets. Let yourself not be bothered by the merchants who tell you...More
Of all the Quarters this is the one with the authentic feel to it. We entered the backdoor way, down grassy bank from temple mount. Had nice breakfast arabik style, good Turkish coffee to go with. 9:30 and shops were opening, half hour later place...More
Though the Arab Quarter might not be the cleanest area in Old Jerusalem, it does have some of the most unique products in its market place. I have visited most of the market places in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and I have learned that...More
You can enter the Moslem Quarter through Lion’s Gate to start at St. Anne’s church and the Via Dolorosa. You can also enter through Damascus Gate which was the only gate where I saw several groups of armed soldiers both inside and outside the gate....More
Damascus Gate is the main entry point to the Muslin Quarter of the Old City. Here, you will be fascinated by the many shopkeepers offering their wares. But, if more importance is the historical sights...the Dome of the Rock is built on top of the...More
For me this was the best spot to shop for spices. Enjoy local food and taste just about everything. I had a blast browsing the shops and meeting new people. When it got hot a fresh Iced coffee will cool you off.
Looots of shops of all kinds, crowded and noisy (possibly also because this is the largest and most populous quarter of all four).If you want to try something traditional, buy some sesame baguette spiced with zatar.
I walked all around Jerusalem and I really felt less safe in the Muslim quarter. Walking down Via Delorosa had shop owners screaming out all kinds of nonsense to tourists. Some would get really pissed off with our tour guide screaming things like "your tour...More
Bakeries with just baked bread - you have to try it. Try cakes, fresh fruits, especially cold fresh fruit juice, obligatory falafel. You can eat for a little money in a Muslim neighborhood. Tasty, not necessarily clean and clean, but not worrying. Except for the...More

Well, I'm sitting in a hostel in the Muslim Quarter of Old Jerusalem right now. Been here several days and wandered around the quarter a lot, both day and night time, without any sign of trouble. (I am white British, neither Jewish nor Muslim). Readers of the above review need to be aware that Jews in Jerusalem largely have nothing good to say about the Muslims, and vice versa. I have been told about the above matter whilst here and it is apparent firstly that this was an isolated incident (I am being told about it months later) and secondly that the victim was a local resident, not a tourist (tourists do not carry guns). Incidents of violence, whilst obviously regrettable, can happen in any city in the world. Is it safer in New York? Or Paris?
