The last survived Fijeh. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . At museum

After the success of supplying Damascus with the fresh water of Ein Al-Fijeh at the Ottoman period in 1908, the coverner, Nazem Pasha, ordered to establish a watering-place in every market and quarter of Damascus to let people drink for free, it was called “Manhal” later on, the name changed to “Fijeh”. People used to send their children or their maids ,if they were rich, to bring them water using clay jars that was called “7ouqq”.These kinds of Fijeh don’t exist nowadays, and the word Fijeh got the meaning of drinkable clear water, so when someone asks “Is this water Fijeh?” he undoubtedly means is it drinkable!
