Bur Dubai

Bur Dubai is a historic district in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, located on the western side of the Dubai Creek. The name literally translates to Mainland Dubai, a reference to the traditional separation of the Bur Dubai area from Deira by the Dubai Creek. This is because Bur Dubai historically consisted of all districts between the western bank of the Creek and Jumeirah. The Ruler's Court is located in the district adjacent to the Grand Mosque. The district is home to several mosques including the Grand Mosque with the city's tallest minaret, and the blue tiled Iranian Mosque. The country's only Hindu Temple is situated between the Grand Mosque and the Creek. It is home to several popular places for tourists including renovated historic buildings and museums. The district is full of shopping streets and souqs (or souk), including the textile souq near the abra boat station, though most of the well known souqs are located in Deira. The museum is open: 8.30am - 8.30pm Sat-Thu 2.30-8.30pm Fri
