The Blue Souq is the largest souk in Sharjah. It was named so because of its uncommon blue vaulted roof. Located in the Khalid Lagoon region, the Blue Souq has two sections and about 600 shops. The first section on the ground floor houses shops that sell designer gold and stone studded jewellery, including antique Yemeni and Omani ornaments. The other section, on the upper floor has shops trading in electronic appliances, gifts items, garments, cosmetics, perfumes and so on.
