Falcon Souq, Doha

4.2
#4 of 18 in Shopping in Doha
For the ultimate Qatari cultural experience, head to Falcon Souq. As you make your way around the souq, you'll start to learn about and understand the importance of falconry in Qatari society. Explore the market to find shops selling training materials, specialized falcon hoods, and even the birds themselves. Make your way to the outdoor area to see the birds exercised several times throughout the day. Most bird keepers will be happy to let you wander around their showrooms, in which you can see the magnificent birds wearing leather hoods and sitting on their perches. Although very well trained, these birds are extremely dangerous, so do not touch unless told otherwise.

  • As the name suggests, this area is dedicated to the sale and care of these amazingly beautiful birds. There’s even a hospital for the birds. Very tidy and I’m sure these birds are well looked after. Maybe there is, but it would be nice if short presentations and demos on falconry are done throughout the day, which I’m sure visitors would be happy to pay for. The shops seem ok though for photos to be taken by the curious. Fascinating.
  • The only Country to have a Falcon Souq and hospital. It is dedicated to sale and care of Falcons. There are multiple shops where you can buy a Falcon with different sizes and casts.
  • The falcon Souq is located in Souq Waqif this place use to be a gold market . The falcon market is a kind of showroom with negotiable price. They might not allow you to carry the falcon to take a photograph with it. The falcon are from the regions and priced according to their training . The most expansive one was sold in 2017 for 350k Qatari riyals almost $100k
  • Its good place to see amazing birds
  • Unique and must visit place in Qatar where you can see various falcon being sold here. The place is very nice and tidy also.
