This is not somewhere to go to immerse yourself in Islamic art. This is a commercial operation. Do not bother to go unless you are interested in buying.

The merchandise they sell are for Royalty, price and quality. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I was impressed with their knowledge of different cultures and how respectful they are of their customers. I felt sorry I couldn't make their quota.
