Al Ain Palace Museum #3


Good day my blogging friends and visitors. How are you today? I hope that everything is well and good. Let me take you again to the majestic Al Ain Palace Museum, located at Al Ain street of Al Ain City, Abu Dhabi.


According to Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage , photo shown above is " a replica of the grand court tent in the grounds of the palace represents an iconic link with the Bedouin life. Sheikh Zayed was proud to meet the guests and VIPs there to demonstrate Arabian hospitality and genorosity".




Wanna ride with me? :) Just kidding.

When I entered the palace grounds, this car was the first thing that I've noticed. As per Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage, the landrover is another symbol of Sheikh Zayed's commitment to his people, in which he drove into the desert to visit the bedouins.

 Quran Room



old Quran


The Quran room is the place where the royal  family met their spiritual needs. It is adjacent to the *school room where the royal children received their education from private tutors. I have seen old and new qurans, a sitting area, old lamps, old shelves, old cupboard and della or dallah (coffee pot) inside the room. It really looks like a perfect place to study.

That's all for today folks. Let me share the other photos tomorrow. Many thanks to Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage and to the tourist guide. For the meantime, I need to rest and sleep, I'll be doing my last PM shift tonight. Oh!......the word of the day...okay , okay here it is......

Word of the day: madrassa is the arabic term for school .Salaam to all!

  3. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
