The diwanya

The Dewaniya mistakenly & commonly called Diwaniya, has existed in Kuwait since time immemorial. The term originally referred to the section of a bedouin tent where the menfolk and their visitors sat apart from the family. In the old City of Kuwait it was the reception area where a man received his business colleagues and male guests. Today the term refers both to a reception hall and the gathering held in it, and visiting or hosting a dewaniya is an indispensable feature of a Kuwaiti man’s social life.

Dewaniya became a fundamental part of Kuwaiti life. Hence, it has become a mark in their traditional daily life.
