My guidebook refers to this shop as an exception to the poor quality shops of Al-Hamidiyya and this is absolutely true.

What to buy: Don’t miss this shop if you want to buy high quality textiles, jewellery and other items.

What to pay: Prices are not negotiable but there are fair.

Address: Located at No 156 in souq al-Hamiddiyya.
Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
