It is a pity nthat I did not find any information about this great sight in the old part of the town Al Muharraq:
This is another traditional house in the souk and unfortunately I was not able to get inside, although the door was obviously open for visitors and the whole complex was also perfectely restored. Our time in the souk was restricted and there was another similar such building on our schedule, the Shaikh Isa Bin Ali House.
This is biggest one of the many mosques that you will find in the Souk of Al Muharraq besides the Shaikh Isa Bin Ali Mosque. There was no way to take a look inside for a tourist and non-muslim like me, but it was great to see it at least from outside and take some pictures to take home as a souvenir. This mosque is in a distance of about 500 meters from the Spice-shop.
Here are some more murals that I found on my own, when looking around some corners, while the rest of our tourgroup was listening to the tourguide and did not dare to explore anything on their own.
These streets had been recently restored obviously and they also did not look like living-quaters, but rather a bit like a museum.
I found it worth seeing anyway !
If you go to the back of the suq it is still possible to see sights like this. But they are getting rarer and rarer. You just have to go in, get lost and you'll find them. Don't worry about the getting lost bit, it's not that big and someone will always show you how to get out again. Treat it as a maze with a difference.
There are more pictures in the travelogue
the sook and the Gold sook:
The Gold Sook is great just cause you see nothing but gold and you can get it for around $12.00 an ounce!
Also the Sook if you can barter you can get some Great deals of some really cool Items
Wooden doors - I took this photo years ago and I'm not sure if it still exists. Having said that it's definately worth a look. As I said before - get lost in the suq and you'll find all sorts.
