Art And Architecture
Known as the cultural city of the United Arab Emirates, Sharjah quenches your appetite for art and its forms. A swamp of artists live and earn their livelihood in Sharjah from all over the world for this reason alone. Asia Pacific takes you through this groovy and creative space and lets your palate fill with artworks and traditional yet modern architectures. Sharjah always thrived to stand out from their counterparts in its fields of expertise which no other emirate can hold up to. The frequent cultural gatherings and exhibitions of artists who live in Sharjah and other places mostly like Egypt, Lebanon, and Jordan, are common scenarios for a Sharjah resident. Arabic arts, particularly calligraphy art has made its way up to the top of Sharjah’s cultural heritage and has found its place in international art galleries.
Our tour of Sharjah is a wild peek into the minds of these artists wandering through their creation. Great buildings which look solid in their build and elegant in design are guaranteed to take you to a faraway fairyland. Some of these structures are the ruler’s old palace and the live and conscious Al Makazi market, a design that blends Arabian culture with a tweak of eastern European style that contributed unique possibilities.
The Sharjah cultural foundation, that presents every two years with its Sharjah biennial located at the heart of Sharjah where artists bring their valuables and exhibit them for the public as they talk about their works as well as their journey, is a principal place to visit.
Another architectural wonder we have in the pocket for you is the king Faisal mosque, named after a former monarch of Saudi Arabia. The mosque is as old as the stories about it. Built by a Saudi architect, the mosque is a pleasure to watch from afar and nearby. Our journey through the lands of Sharjah will continue from there to the Sharjah University, the heritage village, and the souk.
Although Sharjah is less verbal about its proud achievements unlike its neighboring cities, the magic involved surpasses everyone’s expectations. Which is why Asia Pacific aspires to take curious tourists like you to ideal spots like Sharjah, a city you will find relishing in a permanent corner of your heart.
