Built in 1898 by Shaikh Zayed The First, Al Jahili Fort in Al Ain is one of the largest forts in the UAE. With simple mud brick walls and a few basic rooms that remain cool in the mid-afternoon heat, the fort served as a royal residence for Abu Dhabi’s leaders who occupied the fort in the summer months. The original part of the fort consists of two buildings, a square fort and a separate round tower comprising four concentric tiers.
