Description - وصف
The heritage square of Dahr El-Mir is located directly in front of the entrance to the Great Omari Mosque in the Arba'in men's neighborhood. This square dates back to several centuries and is basically an endowment belonging to Emir Ahmet Koçek Pasha. It was also called by this name because it is close to the palace of Prince Fakhreddine, which is currently known as Saray Fakhreddine, which he built and died before he lived there. Dahr El-Mir Square stores an ancient history and heritage. It is the vibrant and active heart of old Sidon, where there are streets that lead to more than one neighborhood and landmark, such as Al-Maslabiya Square, Al-Masalakhiya neighborhood, the wild castle, the Arbaeen Men’s Café, Al-Makassed High School and the headquarters of the Muslim Scouts. This square was and still is the center of the neighborhood’s celebrations and occasions, and it was always dedicated to the departure of religious processions from the Great Mosque and the revival of religious occasions, especially the Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha and the anniversary of the Prophet’s birth. This square will always be a place for the sons of old Sidon to spend their weekends. The first dispensary in Sidon was established by the Muslim Scouts in Dahr El-Mir Square, and from it the Al-Muwasat Association was born.
