Sheikh a Leg
Here is a doorway at Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum's house; the father of Sheikh Rashid, the guiding light of modern Dubai. The building was built in 1896 is now a museum. It displays many photos depicting the emirate from a tiny fishing village, before they discovered oil and the life that people led. The house is situated at the top of the creek, and is part of the heritage area.
