Midhat Pasha Souq (Arabic: سوق مدحت باشا) (also called Al-Taweel Souq) is a historical souq which forms the western half of the Street Called Straight inside the old walled city of Damascus, Syria. It was named after the then Ottoman governor of Syria (and later Grand Vizier) Midhat Pasha who renovated it and ordered its coverage with a lead-shade. Many smaller souqs branch out of Midhat Pasha including al-Buzuriyah Souq and al-Harir Souq. Many important sites are located along the street including Maktab Anbar.
