Sultan: ‘Sharjah Houses’ includes aerial-photography dating back to 1964

His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah announced that he has, for years, collected the names of Sharjah streets, excluding any dubious names, with focus on glittering names for educating.

This came during an intervention His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah made via the Direct Line Programme broadcast live on Sharjah Radio.

The purpose of the collection, according to Sheikh Sultan, was that it would be highlighted, preserved and well remembered, while keeping one educated with these important names.

His Highness added that he is working on a cubit broadsheet book, which contains some of the Houses of Sharjah and its Furjan (a collection of homes or a village), aerially photographed back in 1964.

Talking about the “Islamic Garden”, His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah revealed that it would be opened in the near future. “In the garden, visitors will find a culture without borders  and watch symbols such as astrolabe and medical devices like Al Zahri, Ibn Hayyan and other Muslim scientists and inventors with their names engraved on these symbols, as well as a glimpse about their lives,” His Highness expounded.
