Traditional Handicraft Souq

Market in Sohar

Only half the workshops in this modern arcade are open, but there’s a few mat-weaving establishments and an apothecary, where you can pick up some bukhorr hassad, a mixture of natural ingredients to ward off the evil eye. Try sage for sore throats, frankincense for constipation and myrrh for joint pains. The opening to the souq is at a bend in Sohar Rd by Al Jadeeda Stores.
