Fodor's Review

The last surviving example of a series of inland-facing fortifications that protected Dubai city from attack by hostile desert tribes, this small self-contained mud and coral-stone burj (tower) has been swallowed up by modern development. You can drive past the ruins, but they are not open to the public.
