The Chapel of Saint Ananias, also known as the House of Saint Ananias, is a small underground chapel located in the ancient city of Damascus, Syria. The site is connected to the biblical story of Jesus’s disciple, Saul of Tarsus, later known as St. Paul the Apostle. Over many centuries, non-Christian rulers have continually destroyed the chapel, rebuilt as a pagan temple and mosque before Franciscans rebuilt it in 1814. The chapel consists of two small stone wall rooms with sparse furniture and decor. An altar sits at the end of the room in front of a short row of pews, reflecting the simplicity of early christian churches. The Chapel of Saint Ananias continues to hold services and is an important Christian pilgrimage site.
