The falcon souk comprises multiple shops. I had no problem going in and asking to take some photos of the falcons they had. It is a really cool experience.

Really cultural place in Doha related to the country’s traditions and heritage. It’s also nice for kids to see the falcons and their keepers who do well to explain about the birds 🦅
