  • There are few historical places in Dubai hence, heritage house is a important place to visit to explore history. It is well maintained place. Just beside it, there is a Al Ahmadiya School. You must visit it too. It is old religious arabic school. So, both places must be visited to explore history. There is no fee for entry which is good thing otherwise, even one sip of water costs in Dubai.
