The bimaristan, or hospital, of Nur al-Din Zangi in Aleppo is located in the eastern part of the old city toward Bab Antakiyya. It was constructed during the middle of the twelfth century/sixth century AH.
Very little of the original building remains beyond parts of its entrance portal, including the door frame, inscription plaque, and archway above the lintel of the door. The inscription names Nur al-Din Zangi as the patron but does not include information about the year of construction. Much of the rest of the building has been renovated and rebuilt over the centuries.
