According to Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage, "architecturally, Al Ain Palace Museum replicates many of the characteristic features of important buildings in the UAE. The towers on the either sideof the main entrance were added during the restoration of the palace in imitation of the multistoreyed tower of Jahili Fort. Visitors entering through the outer gate immediately leave behind the bustle and traffic of the modern city".
khanjar : a curved knife
saif: a sword
majlis: a sitting room, either internal or external, generally understood to be the room in which men of a household entertain their male friends.
ghurfa: a room or a suspended floor in a building.
Salaam to all!
