All the guides will take you there, but the store is really full of trinkets of little value. Their process of welcoming you to the store, "blessing you", etc is really cheesy and only the most naive would fall for it. I get it ---...More

We enjoyed our visit to this multi-floor store. We purchased a beautiful wool rug, some pottery and jewelry. The rug was delivered in about 3 weeks to our home in Ohio. We were very pleased with the purchases and the experience.

Purchased exquisite, colorful carpet! Amazing store and service. Very satisfied. Viewed many rugs before deciding on our favorite. It looks wonderful in our dining room! Took 3 months to make and ship our rug and we have been very happy.
