Al Jahili Fort is one of the most historic buildings in the UAE and one of the region’s largest forts. Built at the end of the 19th century, it served as a summer residence for Sheikh Zayed I, the ruler of Abu Dhabi at the time.

The fort has been well preserved and carefully restored and is now a popular cultural attraction for many visitors. It’s set in beautifully landscaped gardens and is home to exhibitions dedicated to both Sheikh Zayed and Sir Wilfred Thesiger, the British explorer, writer, and photographer who crossed the ‘Empty Quarter’ desert twice in the 1940s. There is also a visitor information center on-site.

Practical Info

Al Jahili Fort is located in the southeast of Al Ain, not far from the the Al Ain Palace Museum. It’s open from 9am until 5pm from Tuesday to Thursday, and 3pm until 5pm on Fridays. The fort is closed to visitors on Mondays.
