PHOTOS: A ‘polar bear’ in Doha’s desert climate


As part of Eid al-Adha festivities, Souq Waqif has been playing host to “Bjorn the Polar Bear.” A life-size puppet with a performer inside, some onlookers mistook “Bjorn” for a real bear.

Eid celebrations end tonight at Katara, but continue at Souq Waqif and the malls through Sunday, and at a few locations through next weekend.

Here’s our guide to Eid al-Adha in Doha, but also check Qatar Tourism Authority’s events listing, which has been updated with additional performances.

What have you seen and done around town this Eid holiday?

Pretty cool. Just hope there is not a Nepalese labour inside that the Guardian find out about…….
