Heritage and Diving Villages

Discover Dubai’s history as a pearling nation and see traditional potters and weavers at work

Heritage and Diving Villages

Area: Bur Dubai, Dubai

Shindagha is living testimony of the government’s respect of Dubai’s past. Exhibitions in the Diving Village illuminate Dubai’s historical significance as a pearling nation while potters and weavers practice their traditional crafts at barasti stalls set up in the Heritage Village.

It’s particularly lively during the Dubai Shopping Festival, when you can enjoy a host of demonstrations ranging from traditional cookery training to desert life exhibitions, and parachuting shows to shipbuilding.
