Fences #5

  


You will find these fences in Central District at the back of President's Palace and infront of Etihad Booking office/building.Its design is quite obvious.It is a date* palm tree (Phoenix dactylifera) which belongs to the family of Arecacea.

Word of the day: ashjar is the arabic word for tree.
*(I will post an entry about the date tree and its fruit sometime this month.)

  4. @arabesque,
    Hahaha..i am such a sucker of fences hehehe. I had a nice time wandering around the streets at 07:00 AM. Roads and streets are quiet in the morning because of the holiday fever at night time.

    @Betty,
    It is my pleasure my dear. As I have said, i love visiting your site.

    @Kay,
    Nice to see you again Kay. Thanks for visiting.

    Yes, those fences are "ornate"...it symbolizes the great culture and heritage of UAE. Dates is staple food of the emaratis , even during the era of bedouins.
