Mutrah Souq – Market of Darkness

Al Dhalam Souq (Market of Darkness) – the Mutrah (Muttrah) Souq, one of the oldest marketplaces in Oman and the most important one (located on the route to India an China), near Muscat harbour.
Built two hundred years ago (initially from mud and palm leaves). Some of the alleys are so narrow and stalls so crowded that the sunlight cannot enter. Hence the name of the souq.
