The Muristan area was built up in the 19th century on the lands of the Christian neighborhood of the old city of Jerusalem. This old quarter of the town also served as a forum in the Roman city of Aelia Capitolina. Crusaders gave fame and name to this space. Here was the Order of Hospitallers and famous hospitals for pilgrims. After Saladin conquered Jerusalem, mental patients were homed in the hospital, and it was called Bimarestan or Timarestan. Both words have a Persian character. The first word means the hospital, and the second one implies the hospital for mental patients. Later, only the sound of "Muristan" had been survived and gave the name to the entire area. For a long time, it was an abandoned ruin, until its revival began in the second half of the 19th century. In these years, Euthymius was the patriarch of Jerusalem, and the entire shopping complex of Muristan started to be called the Euthymius Bazaar. Not only Christians traded in more than 70 stores located along the straight and diagonal streets of the Euthymius Bazaar. The shops of Jewish tanners and cloth dealers were popular.
