Glimpses of the UAE
Where are we exploring today? - Sheikh Mohammed bin Salem Mosque in old Ras al KhaimahThe Sheikh Mohammed bin Salem al Qasimi Mosque has recently been restored and is again open for prayers. The mosque was built from coral and other materials near the sea as were most buildings in coastal settlements at the time. It was discovered that the mosque was built on the site of an earlier late 18th century mosque. Due to ongoing covid restrictions, as with most mosques, it’s only open at prayer times. If you’re lucky enough to see the caretaker, he may let you look inside. #mosquesofworld #mosquesoftheworld #uaemosque #rak #visitrasalkhaimah #rasalkhaimah #uaehistory #uaeheritage #mosquesofinstagram #explorerasalkhaimah #discoveruae #discovertheemirates #راس_الخيمه #الامارات #مساجد_الإمارات #مساجد_حول_العالم #مساجد ...

Glimpses of the UAE
Where are we exploring today? - Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club! Yesterday we were down there in the Escapology room but there are many other activities to do there - golf and shooting obviously, archery, football, health club and restaurants with great food too. For adrenaline seekers, at the Paintball Park, apart from paintball, try the War Zone, Air Soft or just go for Speedball or Bubble Football. You’re sure of a great afternoon with friends or colleagues whichever you choose. The nine hole golf course has some great reviews so well worth a visit. It’s located just off the E311 on the border of Sharjah and Ajman. You can find all info on their website. One day soon I’ll do a breakfast post from The Twisted Olive there. In the meantime, I’ve added a photo at the end to give you an idea. #uaegolf #uaepaintball ... See MoreSee Less
