Dhayah Fort, a castle-like structure, is on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List and stands proud amidst the arid mountains and fertile date wadis of northern Emirate Ras Al Khaimah. The fort forms the centre of this lush oasis and boasts spectacular views from the mountains across palm trees and verdant lands to neighbouring Oman and down to the sea. Dhayah Fort is the UAE’s only remaining hilltop fort, dating back to the Bronze Age. The fort is located on a 70-metre hill and provides stunning vistas overlooking the near-by date farms and the coast.
Since prehistoric times, pearls have played an essential role in people’s lives; many have been discovered in Neolithic sites across the UAE. Al Jazirah Al Hamra is the only remaining historical pearling village in the entire Gulf region; the rest were demolished with the discovery of oil. Al Jazirah Al Hamra translates from Arabic to mean Red Island. Al Jazirah Al Hamra includes all of the traditional elements expected in such a neighbourhood, including a fort and watchtowers, mosque, souq and extensive courtyard houses of various designs. There is a mix of dwelling styles from small, simple houses, courtyard homes, two-story buildings to a large courtyard residence that belonged to the wealthy pearl merchant. The buildings were built in a traditional manner using local materials such as coral blocks and fossilised beach rock, mangrove tree beams, date palm trunks, roofing, matting and ropes and layers of seashells for drainage. Al Jazirah Al Hamra is the oldest village in the United Arab Emirates, representing thousands of years of classic architecture in the Middle East. It is also on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Tentative List.
In the heart of Ras Al Khaimah lies a beautiful and protected stretch of mangroves that line the coastline and culminates in the city. Ras Al Khaimah boasts the rugged cloud-piercing mountains of Jebel Jais, the temperate Arabian Gulf, blissfully beautiful white sandy beaches and flamingo-inhabited mangroves. The mangroves form the juxtaposition between nature and urban living. Corniche Al Qawasim is the most beautiful road in the northernmost Emirate.
Excavations revealed the presence of an earlier mosque, dating back to the second half of the 18th century (date as indicated by preliminary analysis of the finds). Historical records indicate a mosque was at this place since the 16th century. The Mohammed Bin Salem Mosque has undergone several renovations and expansion phases up to the present day. During the renovation work, modern additions were removed from the inside and outside and the original architecture, built from coral stone and beach rock, restored and provided with an outer layer of traditional plaster in layer technique.
