Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Explore the old lighthouse of Khorfakkan built in 1623 to guide ships entering the Port

Follow a winding, well-lit path up to Al Adwani Tower to take in the town’s beautiful views. The original Al Adwani Tower was built in 1623 as a lighthouse to guide ships entering Khorfakkan Port. It was subsequently destroyed in 1985 and the mountain it sat on was razed. Today, the tower has been reconstructed in its original location, recreating the landmark.
