Welcome to Majdal Shams


In the centre of town, in the middle of a traffic circle, stands a heroic equestrian statue of Sultan Pasha Al Atrash, Druze hero of the 1925 uprising against French colonial rule in Syria.

Higher education is hugely important here. Before civil war engulfed Syria, some 400 Golan Druze studied at Syrian universities. Now most young locals choose to pursue university studies in either Israel or Germany.
