The Central Souq
The Central Souq, the story of this souq goes back to its roots 40 years ago, starting in 1976, when work began on its construction, until the work cycle ended in November 1978, exuding a wonderful masterpiece. At the time, there were no other markets similar to it, so it was distinguished by its architecture and design, and the British Financial Times described it as one of the most beautiful architectural forms in the Middle East.

السوق المركزي، حكاية هذا السوق تعود في جذورها إلى 40 عام خلت، لتبدأ من عام 1976، حيث بدء العمل بتشييده، وامتدت على مدار29 شهراً، لتنتهي دورة العمل في نوفمبر 1978، فارزة تحفة فنية رائعة. حينها لم يكن هناك أسواق أخرى تشبهه، فكان مميزاً بهندسته وتصميمه، وقد وصفته صحيفة الفايننشال تايمز البريطانية بأنه من أجمل وأروع الأشكال المعمارية في منطقة الشرق الأوسط بعد المسجد الأموي بدمشق.
