It's in downtown, outdoor paid parking, big store for furniture and huge hybrid supermarket. It's famous as the Gold market, where there are 10s of gold shops for all styles.

Don’t bother going. Shops are old and generally was a waste of a journey. Old building and needs an update. Think you can go Hamdad street which is better

We found the gold souk an interesting place. The prices were really cheap too and they will custom make anything you like. Well worth a visit - I actually thought it was cheaper here than in the Dubai Gold Souk. We will be back.
