In Photos: Demystifying Falcon Souq in Doha, Qatar

Falcon Souq in Doha is a living testament to Qatar’s Bedouin heritage. The ancient tradition of falconry thrives on in the shadows of Doha’s modern skyline in the ornate building of Falcon Souq and its many labyrinths, and in young Qataris’ desire to cherish their nomadic past. 

The Falcon Souq located adjacent to Souq Waqif is a great place to watch and learn in-depth about the ancient tradition of falconry that represents generations over generations of bonding between the Arab and his falcon.

I visited Falcon Souq in Doha, Qatar in January 2017
