Description

View of a mosque at Al Muwaiji Fort, then the home of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. A low, flat-roofed square mosque with a walled terrace and arched entranceways sits in the foreground. Behind the mosque the high walls of Al Muwaiji Fort fill the background. On the right a man walks past the square corner tower of the fort, which rises high above the mosque. In the far left background men sit with their camels along the fort's walls.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
