Muscat: There are treasures to be found at the Muttrah Souq.

Probably the oldest souq of its kind in the Arab world, Muttrah Souq stands as a symbol of traditional Omani trade.

A wide range of curios in silver, gold, precious gems and textiles are displayed in stalls deep inside the souq.



Through the centuries, frankincense, oud and other scents prized in the Middle East have been sold and traded here.

If you dig deeper in some stalls, who knows what you might find.



Silver lamps, urns and even antique Arabic manuscripts in traditional calligraphic script await your discovery.

This is also the best place to find khanjars of different designs.
