Al-Shakriya Street in Sidon is one of the oldest streets in Sidon and is more than one hundred and thirty-five years old. It is officially registered as President Bechara Al-Khoury Street. This street extends from the old Sidon cemetery to Al-Qashla. It serves as the commercial center of the city of Sidon, and the eastern entrance to the neighborhoods of the old city of Sidon. Historians differed as to the origin of the street’s name, some of them said that it was named Shakiriya Street in relation to the governor, Shakir Pasha, who opened the gate of Shakeriya, and others said that it was named after the famous Shakeriya Café owner. The first falafel store was on this street, in addition to exchange shops (one of which became one of the largest banks), perfumes, small motels and sweets.
