Further into Deira on Omar bin Al Khattab road, you will find Burj Nahar, one of three inland-facing watchtowers that were used to guard Dubai from attack by hostile desert tribes. Built in 1870 and set amongst beautiful gardens, Burj Nahar is a fine example of an old watchtower and is a wonderful photo opportunity.
