CULTURE SITES – AL AIN – QASR AL MUWAIJI
Qasr Al Muwaiji was home to generations of the ruling Al Nahyan family and saw the birth of Sheikh Khalifa, Founder of the UAE, in 1948. Built in the time of Sheikh Zayed bin Khalifa the First (r. 1855-1909) by his son, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Khalifa, it later became the home and administrative base for the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan when he became the Ruler's Representative in the Al Ain Region in 1946. His eldest son, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, was born at Qasr Al Muwaiji two years later, and spent much of his youth there, learning from his father. Qasr Al Muwaiji is part of the Cultural Sites of Al Ain, which was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list in 2011.
