Muttrah Tours

4 Reviews
Muttrah
Muttrah is a district and former fishing village in the Muscat province of Oman with a long history as a center of commerce in the region. Souq Muttrah, a traditional bazaar still operating today, is one of the oldest marketplaces in the world. Its history dates back to the age of sail, when Muttrah was an important trade location between India and China. Set against the backdrop of the Muttrah harbor, it is still a center for trading and shopping today both for locals and visitors. It is named “Al Dhalam” (‘darkness’ in Arabic) for its many crowded stalls and lanes where little sun hits. Housed under a timber roof, it maintains its traditional Arabic feel. A labyrinth of alleyways, spices, perfumes and stands, it is one of the most popular attractions to visit in Oman.

Stroll alongside the Port Sultan Qaboos (Port Muttrah), one of the main commercial ports of Oman. Barter for silks, precious metals, antiques, spices, incense or jewelry in the souk, stop for an Arabic coffee or a fresh fruit juice, explore the local fish market and be transported to both the past and present of the country’s culture.

Practical Info

Muttrah district is located in the center of Muscat. It is recommended that the Souk Muttrah is visited earlier in the day, as it can become quite crowded closer to evening.
Address: Muscat, Oman
