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,

Enter via Damascus Gate, you are immediately in awe of this forte.
Narrow streets, cobbled floors, take you back to a simpler time. Many street vendors, restaurants, souvenir shops, in-between keep an eye out for historic landmarks, they are all over the place. Of course,...More
The Muslim Quarter, in the northeaster sector of the Old City of Jerusalem, is the largest, most populous and most chaotic of all Jerusalem's Quarters. The frenetic market is the focal point of the Quarter. Actually there are a number of markets but they all...More
It's a dirty place with rude people. Vendor are only nice to you at the beginning, then if you say no to their prices or cancel the negotiations they insult you and tell you to go back to your country. It's quite funny how they...More
Part of the old city in Jerusalem, the Muslim Quarter has beautiful narrow streets with shops selling food, spices as well as Chinese merchandise. Unfortunately its very dirty. The food smelled good but I didn't try it. Their spices looked interesting , again I didn't...More
On the narrow streets there are just shop stalls on both sides and there are stall roofs that prevent day light so it's dark.
The sellers can be rude.
I was ok to stay for couple of nights but would never like to live there.
I was in the Muslim quarter yesterday, and am still shaken. In the distance of 300 meters we were verbally abused by vendors when we did not want to enter their stores or otherwise engage them. Comments from them: “Go back to Germany you Jews”,...More
Entered through Lions Gate and enjoyed walking the narrow streets in the quarter. Be prepared for many sights and sounds as you pass many vendors and stores on your way from site to site. If you're with a group, ensure you pay attention so no...More
This is like the bustle of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, but with a more mixed pot of people. The food, people and the shops are amazing. There's many Christian and Orthodox Jews that go through making it feel like a bygone era where all...More
This is kind of funny and ironic but a lot of the path where Christ travelled flows through here and so it is a must do for the Christian tours. We had some amazing hummus at a muslim restaurant that I also much enjoyed

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?
