It is still intact and very large and impressive. It is right in the middle of the pavement so you can't miss it.

Near the entrance to the souk, this is a cool statue remembering the bane of the European crusaders in the 12th century

We came upon the statue justbefore entering the Souk. It is huge with Saladin triumphant onhis horse and surrounded by Crusaders (Unfortunately ) looking in a bad way. Brilliant statue

Exactly like Baraa A says, ordinary statue, nothing fancy about it... And of course it looks good at night.

just OK, it's just a statue that is not old, the statue is next to Damascus Citadel which is worthy of visiting.

It's a great monument! To commemorate the great man of all ages Salah Al-din Al-Ayoubi

I like this statue very, very much and especially at night with the new lighting on it!! It is directly in front of the old Citadel and you better have a lot of space left on your camera...
