Halloween: ‘haunted’ places of the UAE

Some – believed to be hounted – places in the  United Arab Emirates



At Al Madam Ghost Village – half-buried town with a mosque, abandoned (no reason known…) few years after it was built – in Sharjah Emirate, UAE. It might be not a long time until the houses are completely swallowed by sand.



A fort and abandoned (believed to be hounted) houses in Al Jazirah Al Hamra Old Town – the Emirate of Ras al Khaimah, UAE. Al Jazirah Al Hamra (The Red Island) was originally a tidal island (hence the name). In the early 19th century there were around 200 inhabitants (most of them pearl fishers), in the second half of 20. century: 2500. At the beginning of 20th century it became the part of Ras Al Khaimah. In 1968 – as a result of a dispute – most of the people moved to Abu Dhabi (and hence abandoned village). Renovated Al Jazirah al Hamra Fort (and surrounding villas) hosts today the Heritage Village – a spot for art events and workshops.
