Considered to be the oldest fort in the UAE, the Fujairah Fort has previously served as a defensive building and a home for the ruling family. It stood as the only stone building along the Fujairah coast for many centuries. The fort was established in the year 1670 and reflects the intense past of the region. The Fujairah Heritage Village set up by Fujairah’s Department of Archaeology and Heritage holds the area surrounding the fort as part of it. Here, you can explore restored old houses, exhibits on traditional life, and a display of the Al Yazrah irrigation system that Emirati farmers used in their fields.

The oldest mosque in the UAE, the Al-Bidyah Mosque (a.k.a. the Ottoman Mosque) is located 35kms north of Fujairah city. Built-in the 1446 AD, it is a simple mud and brick structure exhibiting craftsmanship as a major accomplishment for the period and region of construction. Featuring four-pointed domes and a single internal pillar supporting it, the mosque consists of a prayer hall, adorned with arches, ventilation openings, and a mihrab (prayer niche pointing to Mecca). Also, a red carpet with white polka dots and books on the wall shelves adds charm to the hall. Non-Muslims are allowed to look inside the mosque provided they are appropriately dressed. Visitors must take their shoes off and women must cover their hair.
