His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan would have been 100 years old this year and Dubai is celebrating his life in numerous ways. One of them includes a touching photography exhibition at the One&Only Royal Mirage hotel, showing visitors how his visionary leadership, and love for environmental conservation helped to form Dubai's development plan.
As the founder of the United Arab Emirates, his memorable quotes help separate the exhibit of 69 photographs into themes. You can see moments with the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Queen Elizabeth II, and a shot of His Highness watering a date palm 1981.
Located at the Grand Gallery, in the Arabian Court side of the resort I's open for the rest of the year and is free for all.
Just another example that there's more to Dubai than gold samosas.
