Al Ain Palace museum – world heritage site
Al Ain Palace museum
Al Ain Palace museum-Al Ain which is known as UAE’s Garden city is a home to many oasis, museums and forts.It is one of the UNESCO’s World Heritage site. As a part of the World Heritage day celebrations, I went to Al Ain palace museum.The museum also called Sheikh Zayed Palace museum is located on the western edge of Al Ain oasis.
The architectural design and construction of Al Ain Palace is a typical historical building of UAE. It contain many ventilation structures that keep the buildings cool in summer. Building materials used are clay, plaster stones palm tree elements for roofs, ceilings, doors and windows.
This is actually the palace of former UAE president and father of UAE, [Late]His highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his family.
It was great experience for me to explore the rich cultural heritage of UAE. I would recommend all of you to visit this beautiful place whenever you come to UAE.
