Old City Campus

Along Tareeq Al-Wad and the Via Dolorosa leading to Al-Aqsa & Al Bouraq, inside Souq Al-Qattanin stands a caravan saraya: Khan Tankiz, a Mamluk site with Hammam Al-Ayn, a public bath which since its construction in 1300 until the 70s was used by Old City inhabitants. Now for almost a decade, this location hosts the Centre for Jerusalem Studies under Al-Quds University.
