Ajman is centrally located on the western coast of United Arab Emirates. Bordering Sharjah, Ajman is conveniently close to Dubai International Airport (DXB) and the area’s distinguished attractions. Boasting an incomparable location in the United Arab Emirates, Ajman Saray stands near turquoise waters and ivory sands.
Ajman still maintains strong ties to its past. The city of Ajman is built around a striking 18th-century fort, once the home of the ruling family, briefly a police station, and now the Ajman National Museum. Ajman speaks to a range of travellers, offering everything from mosques, museums and archaeological sites to modern architecture and commercial centres. Not to be missed, the Dhow Yard in Ajman is one of the largest active dhow building yards of the world.
The Ajman emirate also consists of two inland enclaves: Masfout is an agricultural area located 110 kilometres (70 miles) to the southeast of the city – near Hatta, which features some of the most beautiful yellow-blossoming farfar trees in the UAE. The other, more northern Al Manama, is located at the edge of the desert and the mountains.
The city and its two enclaves are ruled by emir Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, with his son Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi as the Crown Prince. Sheikh Humaid has been credited with stimulating Ajman’s current massive development and a construction boom.
