Skywatch Friday-Al Ain Palace Museum (part 1)

Al Ain Palace Museum is the former residence in Al Ain of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan between 1937 to 1966. Built in 1937 and had undergone renovations when it was converted into a museum and it was opened to the public in 2001.

Photos shown below were taken last Monday after the torrential rain last Saturday and Sunday. More photos to come next week to show what's inside the palace with its brief description.For the meantime,  I need to do my homework...research.
