History & Culture
Ras Al Khaimah’s location made it a valuable target for domination by a series of invading powers. Eighteen historic fortifications, castles and towers bear testament to a turbulent history that saw Ras Al Khaimah occupied or challenged by the Sasanians, Islamic clans of the Arabian Gulf, the Portuguese, Dutch and British Forces.
Ras Al Khaimah is located in the north part of the United Arab Emirates. It has borders with Oman and with three other Emirates which are Umm Al Quwain, Sharjah, and Fujairah.
Formed more than 70 million years ago, the mountain range incorporates Jebel Jais, which at 1,934m is not only the highest peak in Ras Al Khaimah but in the entire UAE. The Emirate is also famous for its palm gardens and fertile grounds, which have provided food and shelter in the region for many centuries. The red sands of the desert cover the rest of the Emirate.
