Discover what life in Old Dubai was like, during the mid-19th century at Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. Located along the Dubai Creek, this district is a key heritage site with much of the original infrastructure preserved and intact. The traditional wind towers – constructed from stone, teak, gypsum, palm wood and sandalwood – represent only a small part of Al Fahidi’s history. Each alley, twisting pathway and breezy tower tells a story of a life before the seven emirates.
That’s what makes Al Fahidi so unique, the narrow alleyways, tall walls and wind towers rising above our heads and keeping this area cool and pleasant even during the hot summer month. Taken in May 2019.
