Azem Palace is an old Damascus House built during the 18th century. The architecture is excellent. There are several buildings and courtyards. The buildings are in three different colours coming from black basalt, limestone and sandstone. The rooms are decorated with wooden panelling and painted ceilings.
Azem Palace is also the Museum of the arts and Popular Traditions of Syria. There is a display of cloths and things from different parts of Syria.
Entrance: 150 SP (15 SP for students). I visited Azem Palace both in 2002 and 2005 and as for most attractions in Syria the entrance fee had been decreased from 300 SP(in 2002) to 150 SP.
There is also an Azem Palace in Hama.

Address: In the Old City of Damascus, south of the Umayyad
