To rain in Damascus at this time of the year is a very strange thing to happen, especially during the hot weather we are having now, it is really unexpected rain, and a very weird weather and day!

Engraved on this statue, the emblem of the Ottoman Empire appears on its southern part and the signature of Sultan Abdul-Hamid II appears on its northern part which can be seen clearly in the picture above. The monument is located in front of Ministry of Interior which was built in 1900 on the bank of Barda river close to Al-Marjeh Square, according to modern building standards which was distinct in the latest years of the Ottoman era.
