About Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House in Dubai

The popular residential quarter of the former ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House in Dubai, is presently addressed as an eminent tourist attraction. Owing to the rich decor and its historical significance, the place is visited by innumerable tourists every day. The house has been named after the most popular ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum who is also known as one of the greatest rulers of all times in the United Arab Emirates. 

History of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House

Established back in the year 1894, Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum House lies at the Dubai Creek region in Al Shindagha, Dubai. Once built up to shelter the descendants of the Al- Maktoum family, the House has recently been reformed into a museum. Now, besides being a historical building, the museum retains all the historical evidence and artifacts from the Al- Maktoum lineage, which are put on display for the visitors to get a glimpse of.

Features of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House

The Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum House is famous for its distinctive design of the Barajeel or the "air- towers". Apart from the vast designs of its decorative wings, the museum gives an unbelievable opportunity to observe and acknowledge the ancient accessories, coins, garments, utensils, etc and get a step closer to the history of Dubai. The museum is also a storehouse of all the official documents that were once required by the former ruler Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum during his majestic reign. All the antiquities are distributed over nine distinct wings, which are:

1) The History of Saeed Al Maktoum House

2) Al Maktoum Family

3) Social Life in Dubai

4) Marine Life

5) Coins and Stamps

6) Old Dubai

7) Views from Dubai

8) Historic Documents & Maps,

And the visitors are thoroughly guided to the adjacent Wing. 

The Significance of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House

A visit to the Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum House unfolds many facts about the pious relationship shared between the common people of Dubai and Sheikh Saeed. The ruler and his family had always strived towards maintaining a stable relationship of harmony with the citizens of Dubai, and the tradition is still prevalent here. The design of the house had surfaced some of the best architectural skills of that time. 

The visitors entering from the main gate have to face a huge wall owing to which, they have to turn towards either side and cross the wall first, to reach the hall behind. Henceforth, the entry to the hall of Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum House in a twisted way eventually showcases the basic elements that were once used by the people of that era. Presently, the elements have been distributed in a very organized way. 

The Architecture of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House

Another fascinating fact of the Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum House, common to every other residential in the Al- Shingdagha area is that they are faced towards the southwestern direction towards the qiblah in Mecca. Besides this, the guest house in every residence here is positioned on the right side of the person stepping inside the house through the main entrance. This was done according to the age-old belief that the right side of a person is considered to be the optimistic side. Even the kitchen in every house is situated towards the southern end. However, this was based more on the scientific circumference and lesser on the religious belief. The south facing kitchen ensures thorough circulation of the steamy air coming out of the chimneys with the fresh cool breeze blowing from the Gulf region.

Hence, a visit to this place unveils numerous religious values and fascinating architectural skills which eventually explain the simplicity of the pre-oil era and the unscathed belief towards the religion.

    • Trip to Dubai

      5 Night 6 Days Package taken for Dubai. Till the time amount has not been paid, the service is very good. As soon as you pay, the service levels starts falling to the negative zone and now you will have to chase the agents. Even your calls go unnoticed. Then you write on twitter for Travel Triangle and then someone calls to address the query, but obviously this is not a professional behavior one expects post booking. I can mention the names of the agents, but dont want to share them publicly so let it be In my case As soon as i paid the first installment, the service levels started going down, and by the time i had paid the last installment, i was quite frustrated, but had no choice I would not say they do not answer your queries, but it becomes difficult to get things done as per your request. In my case the reason they gave was that they had a few layoffs in their company in operations team, but that is not customer's problem. They should decide whether they have adequate resources to manage the trip or not I received the final voucher on Saturday for the trip to begin on Monday, i think it should have come a couple of days in advance Here are few negative points related to the trip experience 1. Not enough time given in Ferrari world. We had to rush through all the rides, which is one of the most expensive places to visit in tour 2. City tour not enough, some points not covered, its just a half day city tour 3. Sim card not provided in package. Asked to pay extra. The agent mentioned that i can use whatapp calling easily, but when i reached Dubai i found that whatsapp calling is not allowed their as easily as in India, so had to spare extra bucks. And in Dubai, it went upto 2K for just 5 days 4. Pick up time - In my case the pick up always happened earlier that mentioned, but after my pickup, i had to wait more than 15 minutes for all other guests. I dont mind waiting for sometime in a SIC transfer, but this does not mean i am spending almost 30 minutes waiting for some other family and my tour time gets cut 5. Food - Both the dinner - Dhow cruise and dessert safari, too bad. They litteraly say you "No" after serving a couple of times, saying that its over. Plus the taste for veg is really bad, so vegetarians be cautious and i suggest take your own snacks 6. Booking hotel - Just the day after i paid the first installment, the team calls me and says the hotel you asked is not available. That was highly disappointing as it makes you feel that they are now trying to give you a low cost hotel instead 7. Visa - Even for Visa booking, the process was not 100% smooth Positives - 1. During the trip, their wasn't much coordination issues Overall, I would not recommend the agent again, and myself shall not go through travel triangle again, and for a place like Dubai, i do not suggest booking through any travel agent at all. Just arrange Visa, flights and hotels, and go there. Most places you can cover through hop on hop off bus service in the city. The remaining few can be booked from your hotel reception, or online also

    • Trip to Dubai

      Very nicely arranged, well co-ordinated, well arranged. Hotel was good, except that we ended up paying extra for early checkin, room was spacious and room cleaning was done daily. Breakfast buffet was great everyday, even the hotel restaurant food was very good. Cab transfers, drivers and tour guides were well behaved and on time( many times arrived before time). Places were covered well. Except for Dhow cruise in Dubai creek( for which I had lot of expectations) which turned out to be not a great experience. Cruise was bit unclean, performance were good but food was really bad. One of my friend who works in Dubai did advise me that Dubai Marina cruise is much better than Dubai Dhow cruise. My advice is that you can offer Marina cruise to other customers so that it will meet their expectations. Same advice for Desert safari. Though Dune bashing, Desert safari and performances were ok, but the food was very bad. May be you can find something better place. Overall, Travel Triangle and Travel Safari did put up great effort to make our first wedding anniversary very memorable. Thank you. Visit to Burj Khalifa, Dubai mall underwater zoo. Dubai Marina urban zipline( was planned on our own) and Ferrari world.

      Amazing service from Dream Holidays Hub. Didn't face even a small issue during our entire trip. Hatim was very cooperative right from the very first day. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Highly recommended!! Desert Safari was the highlight of our trip. The food was also amazing on Marina cruise and Safari night.
