Bur Dubai History
A number of historic buildings bear witness to the importance of Bur Dubai, notably the house where Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum, the visionary Ruler of Dubai (1912-1958), once lived. His grandson, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is the present Ruler. Nearby is the Al Shindagha Watchtower, built in 1939 for defence and restored in 1994, and several other historic buildings that together give a sense of what this place was like in the good old low-rise days.
Many foreign embassies are located in the diplomatic area along the banks of the Creek, together with various government and royal buildings.
