Explore the Bastakiya Quarter

The Bastakiya Quarter in Bur Dubai is one of the most picturesque heritage sites in the city, featuring the traditional "wind towers."

The Bastakiya Quarter was built in the late 19th century by Persian merchants attracted to the city by its relaxed trade tariffs.

The area has been declared a conversation area, and while some buildings are private homes, many are open to the public.
