The bazaars of Damascus are among the most famous of their kind.
It has its own shops, bazaars, mosques, &c., and constitutes a quarter by itself.
In its bazaars an active trade in agricultural produce, glass, pottery, saddlery, and copper and iron ware is carried on; but the manufacture of fire-arms, for which Prizren was long famous throughout European Turkey, has suffered greatly from foreign competition.
It consists, besides' the European houses, of two bazaars.
There are several bazaars, baths and handsome mosques, one noted for its lofty minaret, and here the American Presbyterian mission has established a college for both sexes.
