About Central Souq, Sharjah

Housed inside an architecturally marvellous structure (it is one of the most photographed buildings in Sharjah), the Blue Souk is where you should head over to if you want to shop till you drop! Home to over 600 shops, the souk is embellished in blue tiling thus giving it the name. Also known as Central Market, the souk has traders selling items such as electrical goods, traditional as well as antique jewellery, kitchen utensils, gold, famous UAE gems, perfumes, souvenirs and even Arabic carpets.

Trivia: The impressive building was designed by British architects Michael Lyle & Partners. The Ruler of Sharjah, HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi gave his inputs during the designing stage.

Central Souq, Sharjah Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great place to find rugs or all origins and qualities. Make sure you haggle and have plenty of time to spare. Visit several stores and examine designs and get a good indication of price before moving to the next. Much better prices than in Dubai. Apart from the rug and pashmina stores there are no other places of interest.

  • Quality products and reasonable prices... lots of choices you can choose... from gold and white gold with lots of designs you can choose... One of best place to visit and buy different ad unique UAE souvenirs

  • Good place to buy gold, silver, perfumes and souvenirs. You need to take care about the parking since this area is crowded. And if you visited between 1 to 4pm mostly all the shops will be closed for the break time.

  • This is located in Sharjah. One of the best traditional places to visit occupies two long parallel buildings connected by indoor bridges. This is a best place to buy modern jewellery, watches and local and international clothing; upstairs is more regional flair, with rugs, pashminas and curios from the Arab world. Visit in the evening, when the place fills with locals.

  • Come to this market if you want to buy gold jewelry and carpet in Sharjah. Be prepare to haggle to get to great price. Better visit in the afternoon and at night.
