Right next to the Bazaar this huge open spaced square is not much to look at and takes minimal time to walk around. Litter and dog droppings, so mind where you step, some shady trees would be nice, lots of people frequent this area.

The open plaza (called Midan Hussein) is next to the Khan Al-Kahlil Bazaar, so it is as crowded, with several restaurants were salesmen trying to encourage you to eat in their restaunat. There is a big Mosque on its north side, called Hussein Mosque. There is also a Shrine inside the Mosque.
