Locals claim that the Prophet Muhammad refused to enter Damascus on his journey to Mecca--he wished to enter Paradise only once in his lifetime.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bosra ash-Sham (in Daraa), As Suwayda (Shahba City & As Suwayda Museum) and Deir Mar Musa El-Habashi (in Maaloula). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Umayyad Mosque, admire the striking features of Khan Asaad Basha, wander the streets of Old City, and contemplate the long history of Sayyida Ruqayya Mausoleum.
