Al Ain Palace Museum #4

Hello friends and visitors. How's your friday? I hope that everybody enjoyed skywatching. Once again, let me take you to the majestic Al Ain Palace Museum. This is the last part of the series and I hope you enjoyed looking at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

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".

That's all folks, I hope you enjoyed it. Actually, I still have lots of photos to share but I think that  would be enough and I think those are the important areas and things that a visitor must see inside the museum.

Just in case you want to travel to Al Ain City and visit the museum, here's your guideline:

Words of the day:
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.
