False advertising as "Art Gallery" It is an impressive looking retail outlet, with guard watching through a small window at entry doorway.
Merchandise is expertly displayed, simulating "Museum Style" Most Items are REPLICAS from the street-markets of India, Turkey, etc. The showroom aims to impress the trusting customer. Smooth sales-talk throughout your visit. BEWARE..... of ASTRONOMIC PRICES unashamedly charging 10 times over realistic value. DO NOT BE FOOLED, they will treat you like royalty as staff walks you through, but if you purchase you may end up feeling violated by skilful BANDITS on your way out!!
Of course photos are not aloud, as this would be incriminating for this fraudulent establishment.

mash'allah, this is fantastic! such exquisite artwork from tapestries to painted marbel, fine persian carpets to almost priceless wallhangings (they sure are priced and in the range of millionaire's pocket money). a lovely cool and tranquil surrounding awaits you and your pocketbook.
the gallery is free to enter, the staff are very helpful and respect your privacy but unless you could never be affected by a financial crisis, don't expect to take home anything even though it's all for sale. this should be a must for all visitors to the emirate. a great example of cultural and religious creativity.

I loved the time I spent there and bought a beautiful hand made, hand knotted carpet portrait. It was efficiently shipped to me and I am delighted with it. I would certainly recommend anyone going to Dubai to pay a visit.
