The Bimaristan Nur al-Din functioned as a medical school as well as a place of healing in the heart of the old city of Damascus. The word “bimaristan”, in fact, translates from Persian to “place of the sick”. The hospital was built in 1154 by Nur al-Din Mahmud ibn Zengi who ruled Syria from 1146–1174. The Bimaristan Nur al-Din a was documented as part of Project Anqa, a collaboration between the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), CyArk, and Carleton University and was funded by the UK based charity the Arcadia Foundation.
