Finally, I found some doors in the UAE that I call doors, not solid, thick, meaty doors, I’m not sure I’m ever going to find those types here, but these ones are carved, slightly misshapen and quaint. I’m really happy to have found these doors.
Ras Al Khaimah museum is located in a 19th-century fort that was the residence of the Qawassim rulers until 1964.The building is quiet and serene, an inner courtyard and wind towers. Just how you imagine wealthy Arabia used to be, in days past.
Sneaking in a photo of the courtyard and wind tower.. just setting the tranquil scene, lots of lovely carved doors too, but saved for future posts when my Arabian doors are thin on the ground and in substance…
If you happen to be in the area, it’s a lovely place to visit, well thought out, beautifully preserved with some interesting ethnographical collections, informative regional archeological history plus a wonderful shell collection room too… another sneak photo chance!
