Katara is a cultural village in Doha. It is located on the eastern coast between West Bay and the Pearl. It was soft-opened in October 2010. The buildings and facilities at Katara were deliberately arranged randomly in order to look and feel like a traditional Qatari Al Fereej. It's a wonderful place to walk around and enjoy the Arabic food... More

The buildings were stunning. The amphitheatre's acoustics were awesome. There were 3 giant sculptures made out of old metal cups/plates/cutlery etc. The mosque was beautifully decorated with ornate tiles. Well worth spending the day there. One of the restaurants had 2 spit roasts lambs cooking on a rotisserie. The smell was amazing.

I visited this place as part of the Doha City Tour. The tour was very rushed and I spent less than half an hour here without actually experiencing any of the attractions safe for the Qatar Photographic Society. There was an exhibition of equestrian-themed photos, all of which were very high-quality. I gave this attraction 4 because the environment looks... More

The beauty of this place is in its architecture. One side facing the ocean the other is a great example of how a tourist center should be constructed. The auditorium has echo when you stand right in the center of the stage. Again one of the cleanest public sites I have ever visited. Filled with fine dinning restruants and Kharak... More

We visited the Karara Cultural Village Opera House to hear the Qatar Philharmonic. They did a Brahms program that was lovely. The building itself is quite beautiful, the seats are plush and clean. We thought they looked like thrones. I love the looks of the Village. They are apparently sparing no expense and making gorgeous buildings that will be beautiful... More
