The area
Neighborhood: Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.

Erstwhile summer residence of Sheikh Rashid
Sep 2016 • Solo
The Majlis Ghorfat Umm Al Sheif is located near the Jumeirah coastal road in Dubai and is easily accessible by public transport. This structure, though small, carries historical significance as the summer residence of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the erstwhile ruler of Dubai and father of the current Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The entrance and walking path are surrounded by palm trees. The majlis is a two storeyed structure, with the upper floor having the majlis and two smaller rooms. The Majlis was where the Sheikh would often hold discussions with his advisers. One can see a good collection of the diwans etc. used in those days.

A palm tree garden in Jumeirah
May 2014 • Friends
It's so nice to visit this majlis, so different than all the shopping malls. You can walk in the garden and enter the summer residence. The visit won't take long : 20 to 30 mn only.
