Qasr Al Watan reflects centuries of Arabian architectural design and tradition in a palace built for the 21st century.
More than a traditional palace, Qasr Al Watan is an exquisitely crafted tribute to the Arabian heritage and artistry of the region.
The architectural and interior design echo the significance of the exhibits housed within its walls and the function of its most iconic rooms.
The palace took 150 million man hours to build and is part of the 380,000 sq. m Presidential Palace compound.
The facade is constructed from white granite and limestone built to last hundreds of years with the colour white chosen as a symbol of purity and peace.
