“a wonderful statue to see”

Ranked #10 of 41 things to do in Damascus
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We came upon the statue justbefore entering the Souk. It is huge with Saladin triumphant onhis horse and surrounded by Crusaders (Unfortunately ) looking in a bad way.
Brilliant statue

Exactly like Baraa A says, ordinary statue, nothing fancy about it... And of course it looks good at night.

just OK, it's just a statue that is not old, the statue is next to Damascus Citadel which is worthy of visiting.

It's a great monument! To commemorate the great man of all ages Salah Al-din Al-Ayoubi

I like this statue very, very much and especially at night with the new lighting on it!! It is directly in front of the old Citadel and you better have a lot of space left on your camera...
