Doha: Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels, the exclusive hotel collection owned and managed by Al Rayyan Hospitality, celebrated the Garangao Night, the Qatari tradition on the night of mid-Ramadan.

Joy filled the air when children visiting the souq received special Garangao gifts of all kinds of sweets and nuts. The night has always been an important feature of Qatari heritage and traditions.

Shaikha Al Mudahka, P R Director at the hotel, said: “Garangao is an Arabian Gulf national, traditional festivity held on the night of mid-Ramadan when children visit door to door in their neighbourhoods, singing Garangao songs and receiving gifts and sweets bags. 

“The hotel has always been keen to honour these festivities and commit to celebrating the night with children for the joy and happiness it brings to them.”

Amid wide support and welcome during the night, a large number of children poured into the streets wearing traditional clothes and listening to traditional stories. They also sang the Garangao song and learned about traditional handicrafts.
