EDITORS COMMENTS
Damascus, the ancient and enchanting capital city of Syria, comes alive in this photograph of Midan Bazar, taken circa 1909. Midan, or the central square, was the heart of the bustling commercial district, where merchants from all corners of the world gathered to sell their wares. At the center of the square, a dervish, a member of the Sufi Muslim brotherhood, performs a ritual dance, lost in the trance-like state of his devotion. The dance, known as the Sama, is a spiritual practice meant to bring the dervish closer to God. The vibrant scene is filled with the sounds, smells, and colors of the bustling market. Shoppers haggle over prices under the shade of colorful awnings, while merchants display their goods on the streets and in the shops that line the square. The intricately designed pottery, richly embroidered textiles, and exotic spices are just a few of the treasures that can be found in this bustling souk. Damascus, a city with a rich history dating back over 10,000 years, is a melting pot of cultures and traditions. This photograph offers a glimpse into the past, showcasing the city's vibrant and diverse community. Despite the passage of time, the spirit of Midan Bazar remains alive, drawing visitors from around the world to experience its enchanting allure.
