This chapel stands on the site of Ananias' house. Ananias was the man, who after receiving a message from God, miraculously restored the sight of Saul (later known as St. Paul). The ancient chapel lies behind a modern outer building and gateway.
The Chapel of St Ananias is one of two in Damascus associated with St Paul. This church claims to occupy the site of the house of St Ananias, where St Paul took refuge. Although the current structure was built in the early 20th century, a church existed on this site from Byzantine times around the 5th century AD until the 13th century.
This chapel is like a cellar under a house at the morth-eastern corner of christian quarter. Admission SP25.
