This cultural centre is known for its antiques. It has the Maria Theresa thalers that were once used as the official currency in Oman. Other cultural features that can be found in this centre include nuts, dried lemons, spices, and vanilla found in the centre’s older section (Muscat-expo.com, 2022). During the tours, this place can provide the town’s prized dates. -Adventure Tours
Authentic souq, not many of them left out there. Highly recommend visiting if you get a chance. There's a few sections worth seeing such as meat, fruits and vegetables, fish and also some craftsmen stands where you can buy mugs, pottery, etc. Very cool 👍
