King Faisal Street (Arabic: شارع الملك فيصل) is a main street in central Aleppo, Syria. Located to the northwest of the Saadallah Al-Jabiri Square connecting the Aleppo Public Park with Al-Sabil Park. The street ends up with Shihan Square to the north of the city centre.
In 1964, the Saint Matilda Melkite Greek church was opened on the street. Later in 1978, ar-Rahman mosque was built on the street, adjacent to al-Sabil park.
The street served as a highway until 2008 when the separating green row of trees was removed and the street was turned to a single-way avenue.
