Al Jahili Fort is a truly historical building for Dubai. In a land where the desert prevailed and not too many permanent structures existed, the Al Jahili fort stood and stood strong for many years. Built in 1898, this fort was important from the point of view of defence as well as habitation as all the resources were at hand. Once, it was the site great importance and a frontier that guarded the precious pal groves of the Arabs.
However, it fell into ruination and was restored only in the 1980s. Now the fort has recently been completely restored in 2008 and can finally be viewed by tourists. It has ample space that was reserved for performances and certain performances may still be conducted here.
