Welcome to Azem Palace

Azem Palace

Visitors to Damascus can escape the hustle and bustle of the city by retreating into the tranquil grounds of the 18th century Azem Palace. The modest exterior of this building holds a treasure of marble flooring, Oriental carpets and mother-of-pearl furniture, and is also home to a garden with lovely flowers and fountains to enjoy.

Information & Facts

Just south of the Umayyad mosque.
Arabic is the official, and most widely spoken, language. English is widely understood by many educated Syrians in the major cities.

The official currency is the Syrian pound (SYP), which is divided into 100 piastres. There are a few ATMs in the bigger towns, but not all cards are accepted. Credit cards are not widely used, but American Express and Diners Club are the most readily accepted. Travellers cheques are not accepted in most banks, and those that do require lengthy and complicated processes.

Daily 9am to 4pm.
Local time is GMT +2 (GMT +3 from April to October).
