Ghazala House, built in the seventeenth century, is located in the extra mural Judayda Quarter of old Aleppo. The Ottoman era house is unique with its rich ornamentation. Each window in the courtyard has a stone lintel with carved floral designs. The walls are covered with alternating black and white stone panels up to the second story. The rooms have wooden ceilings painted with floral motifs. Ghazala House is the only house in Aleppo that has its own baths (hammam). These are located in the west wing. The tepidarium section of the baths has a set of columns with muqarnas capitals.
The house was damaged during the Syrian Civil War.1
