DAMASCUS is The Oldest Capital City In The World !. Its local name is DAMSHIK. From the word ‘DAM’ meaning ” Blood” and ‘ SHIK’ meaning ” The Valley where the blood flowed”.

Damascus is situated in ” The Valley” surrounded by the QASIMUN Mountains where it was alleged that HABIL ( Abel), son of Prophet Adam a.s, was murdered by his elder brother, QABIL ( Caine) . Qasimun means ‘ harsh’. This is where the first crime being commited by mankind. The ‘ Blood’ flowed down to the valley where Damshik is situatedkampung luat

We traveled to Qalamun mountain at a place called Zabadani about 45 km north of Damascus. This was the place where Qabil buried his brother Habil as shown to him by the example of the crows.kampung luat
