Khan al-Wazir is located between the Citadel and the Great Mosque. A portion of it was demolished during the French Mandate while the wide street in front of it was created according to the traditional urban fabric. This section was recently reconstructed. This khan is one of the largest ones in Aleppo. It follows a traditional plan with merchant's storage areas and stores wrapping the courtyard's perimeter, and sleeping quarters for travelers on the second story.
