Muttrah Souq-Muscat

Description

This is a traditional Arabian souq- a warren of alleys with stalls where you are persuaded to buy traditional perfume, incense and incense burners for a couple of rials; trinkets, pashmina shawls, exotic looking dresses, and carved boxes.
The ceilings that protect shoppers from the overpowering heat are made of wooden beams or traditional straw woven mats.
