What people are saying:

This is an old castle in the 19th century. Although it may not have a long history compared with the old castles in Europe, it has its own unique style. Although it is a little far away, it is still worth visiting.

    Cool UAE history. Must visit

    Must do if you visit Al Ain. Simple without much “touristy” things you’d normally find in similar iconic places, but very authentic with awesome history and first hand experience of the old UAE. Our ...
