  • The most wonderful local souq experience you can get besides the Manama souq
  • Reasonable prices with a variety of products. Starting from traditional sweets, perfumes, clothing, Electronics. And you will find some antiques musical instruments. And within this market you will find the"pearl's road" which was, and still one of the oldest trading roads in Bahrain.
  • Nothing more to describe about this place, the name itself is the history in itself , from the sweet shops to the garashi (grocery) stores... one can find here things needed from a needle to everything that needed for daily household ....
  • A pleasant trip as always, the halwa from Hussain Mohammad shoaytet is always good, plan a trip if you're in Bahrain.
  • It's the oldest Souq in Moharraq were you will be able to buy traditional sweets like Bahraini halwa
