Souq Al Shanasiyah is a restored old Souq (market place), which forms part of the Heart of Sharjah heritage development. Along with the Souq Al Arsah, this souq has a line of shops created in the traditional architecture of the region.

The souq is not really a place to shop much; one would get the usual carpets, spices and tourist things here. It gets visitors primarily during weekends only. There is a small heritage centre here, showing some of the excavations made in the area and the history behind it. Apart from that, there is not much to do here. One can spend 20-30 minutes.
