Falcon Souq the tradition of hunting with falcons began in the region thousands of years ago with desert nomads and the practice still continues today. Falconry is a big hobby for Qatari men, therefore it isn't a surprise to find an entire block of Souq Waqif dedicated to these impressive birds. Everything for and about falcons can be bought in these special shops. There is even a falcon hospital within the souq itself! The top falcons are usually issued with their own passport to ensure their Qatari origin and to testify they haven t been stolen or taken without the owner's permission.
