Photo Speaks – Exploring Abu Dhabi – through clicks and writes – Mina Market
Mina market, or the Old Iranian market in Abu Dhabi is a must to visit place if you are in Abu Dhabi. If not done already, do it fast as the area is getting totally revamped. It has numerous shops selling hand-crafted items, which some of them even made there in front of you. There are numerous horticultural shops which sell flowering plants. You will also find exclusive shops selling traditional kitchen utensils, and cookery items used for large scale cooking purpose. A fish market is also situated in this area.
All these facilities are marked for renovation and before it is closed down, enjoy the traditional beauty of the city, which once used to be a regular visiting place of the prominent local families.

Exploring Abu Dhabi is a photo journey – a collection of photos taken in Abu Dhabi as I traveled around the city. Looking at them, I feel, I haven’t explored even one third of it. Thought of creating a daily sequel, which will be an inspiration to know and learn more about this beautiful city I live.
