The Souk Khan Murjan is located on the underground floor of the Wafi Shopping Mall. If you don´t know in advance, you would hardly expect such a hidden gem. Allow yourself be enchanted by the magic of ancient times.

This magnificent building was inspired by the ancient market of Baghdad, which was located underground and its beauty is always literally breathtaking. The Dubai market took its name from Khan Murjan.

As soon as you walk down the stone staircase, you find yourself in a labyrinth of intricate tunnels hiding in the mysterious gloom. The Souk is divided into four parts - Egyptian, Syrian, Turkish and Moroccan quarters, each is characterized by its unrepeatable elements. Each piece of the beautiful marble mosaics, carved over the door to one of the largest stained glass windows in the world, are the manual works of the greatest masters of their craft.

Only the most exquisite handmade pieces are sold in 150 stores - Persian woven carpets, traditional hand-sewn clothes, tables inlaid with pearl mosaics, wrought vessels, and many others. The atmosphere is underlined by the pervasive smell of incense, spices and tobacco pipes, which primarily descend from the charming restaurant located in the central courtyard located in the open air, where it is worth tasting one of the many delicacies of typical Arabic cuisine.
