Roundabout Series: Deer Roundabout




This is the Deer Roundabout located at Al Mutaredh District of Hazzaa Mosque Community along  Zayed Ibn Sultan Street and Khalifa Ibn Zayed Al Awwal Street. It has four water fountains, cacti, and succulent aloe plants. A distinctive feature of this roundabout is the absence of palm trees, which is very uncommon. Palm trees and water fountains are very common feature of the roundabouts here at Al Ain City. 

I wonder why it is called Deer Roundabout even though it is obvious that the animals at the top are replicas of Arabian Oryxes. I cannot think of any probable reason behind its name. I mean, why is it called deer roundabout.

Word of the day: gazal or ghazal is the arabic word for deer. Salaam!
