Old Muttrah Souq

Mutrah Souk is one of the oldest marketplaces in the Arab world. For centuries it served as a trading place for goods that passed through the Muscat harbor from India, China, Europe and other parts of the Middle East.

The souk is still a lively marketplace today, with trading of local produce like fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices as well as traditional textiles, garments, jewelry, incense, pipes, pottery and craftwork.


The market is open twice a day: first from early morning until midday and then from late afternoon until late evening.

On Fridays, the market only operates in the afternoons. It can be difficult to find a parking spot around the busy marketplace, so come by taxi instead.


Muttrah Souk is located located by the harbor in the heart of Old Muscat. It’s free to enter the souk. 


The souk also features numerous gold shops a couple of hundred metres west of the main souk entrance, passing through a fascinating series of alleyways stuffed with gold and silver jewellery.


Tip: haggling may get you a slight discount however some shops may not agree to lower their prices.


Distance from hotel to Muttrah Souk 16km.
