Activity Description

Al Jahili Fort is one of the largest historical forts in the city of Al Ain, built in the 1890s on the orders of Sheikh Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, also known as Zayed the First, as the home to members of the ruling Al Nahyan family. Between 2007 and 2008 the fort was restored and transformed into a cultural centre and tourist attraction; houses a permanent exhibition devoted to Sir Wilfred Thesiger and also a home to a temporary exhibition gallery. This fort won the prestigious Terra Award for Internal Design and Layout in 2016 and has been a focal point of activities associated with the philosophy, culture and heritage of Abu Dhabi.
