Souq El Mushir Street Tripoli

by on Apr.24, 2017, under Travel

What is a Souk and Where Did it Originate?

A souq was originally an open-air marketplace. Historically, souqs were held outside cities at locations where incoming caravans stopped and merchants displayed their goods for sale. Souqs were formed whenever a caravan or caravans arrived. Since this might be infrequent, souqs often extended beyond buying and selling goods to include major festivals involving various cultural and social activities. Any Arab Souq may serve a social function as being a place for people to meet in, in addition to its commercial function.

Later, due to the importance of marketplaces and the growth of cities, the major locations of souqs shifted to urban centers.

In tribal areas, neutrality from tribal conflicts was usually declared for the period of operation of a souk to permit the unhampered exchange of surplus goods.

The spelling souk entered European languages probably through French during the French occupation of the Arab countries Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia in the 19th and 20th centuries. Thus, the word “souk” most likely refers to Arabic/North African traditional markets. Other spellings of this word involving the letter “Q” (sooq, souq…) were likely developed using English and thus refer to Western Asian/Arab traditional markets, as British colonialism was present there during the 19th and 20th centuries. In Modern Standard Arabic the term al-sooq refers to markets in both the physical sense and the abstract economic sense (e.g., an Arabic-speaker would speak of the sooq in the old city as well as the sooq for oil, and would call the concept of the free market السوق الحرّ as-sūq al-ḥurr).

As in markets generally, prices are commonly set by bargaining between buyers and sellers.

The term is often used to designate the market in any Western Asian city, but may also be used in Western cities, particularly those with a Muslim community.

Named after a leper hospital dedicated to the St James the Less that was disbanded in 1532, the property a marshland called Eton College was commissioned by Henry VIII and converted to St James Park and Palace. After the English Commonwealth period and after Charles I spent his last sleepless night in St James Palace before his execution to which later his son Charles I refurbished the palace along with its park. St James Park is 23 hectares (57 acres) and one of the oldest Royal parks in London.

London is packed with interesting historical marks and stories, hence whilst browsing through our five star self-catering accommodation.

There is quite a lot of breath taking views to take in at St James Park. The park has a small lake called St James Park Lake that has two islands namely, West Island and Duck Island. Duck Island receives it names for the large collection of waterfowls. The first gift of birds to the St James Park was a colony of pelicans by the Russian Ambassador in 1664 – the famous colony still exists. St James Park Lake has a Blue Bridge that showcases a spectacular west view of the Buckingham Palace framed by trees. The east view from the Blue Bridge looks upon the Swire fountain north of Duck Island, past the lake and upon the grounds known as Horse Guards Parade along with the Horse Guards Building and the Old War Office whilst the Whitehall Court is at the back.  The south of the Duck Island is the Tiffany fountain situated on top of the Pelican Rock and when past the lake is the famous London Eye and The Shard. Apartments near Westfield London suggests visiting the London Eye to experience spectacular views of London at great heights.  St James Park is close to a chain of parks; Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

Henry VIII bought the land initially Eton College for Cardinal Wolsey with intentions to turn Whitehall then called as York Palace into dwelling of extravagance for the king. On the accession of James I to the throne the park was ordered to be drained and filled with exotic animals including camels, elephants and crocodiles. The park was opened to the public when Prince Charles II returned from France after his exile. The park had a formal and French allure as he was taken up by the extensive French gardens during his exile in France, it was speculated that the park was designed by Andre Mollet. Charles II added a feature by adding extra 38 meters to entertain guests and mistresses, this brought about a lot of mischief to the park as the poet, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester wrote in his poem, A Ramble in St James Park. Just as many London’s famous tourist attractions find its way into movies, books and poems, St James Park played its part.
