The smallest of the seven emirates, Ajman is a charming settlement hugging the Persian Gulf’s coastline. It also lays claim to two tiny enclaves in the Hajar Mountains. Once an important Bronze Age community, modern Ajman is the antithesis of the bustle and energy of Dubai. Situated along a natural creek, Ajman is home to many historical sites, an enchanting museum and the largest dhow building yard in the world. The traditional way of Arab living has been well preserved here, providing a pleasant blend of the old and new. Natural attractions are represented by golden sandy beaches and the startling different topography ranging between mountains and flat sandy land. The Ajman National Museum is one of the main tourist attractions in the city. The historical fort houses representative of different periods in the emirate’s history, various archaeological acquisitions, historical documents, and tools and implements used in olden days. It was the primary residence of an Ajman’s ruling family until the year 1970, after which it was restored and converted into a museum. Ajman’s dhow yard are the world’s largest active dhow building yard. The dhow is a wooden ocean going boat of Arabic origin, featuring one or more lateen sails. They are built by hand with traditional tools, as per oral guidelines that have been handed down from generation to generation.
