Dubai Municipality reveals video of Deira restoration
Under the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, Dubai Municipality has completed a project to revive Deira’s traditional markets and preserve its heritage architecture.
The initiative was part of the development projects approved by HH Sheikh Mohammed last January to preserve the UAE’s heritage and cultural identity.
The Dubai Municipality project aimed to preserve more than 220 historical buildings by renovating their facades and restoring their historical and architectural features.
The project also sought to enhance the urban spaces surrounding these buildings by modifying traffic routes to highlight the distinct character of the historic area.
