Islamic architecture.. (between the past and the present)..

Capital of Islamic Culture:

The Emirate of Sharjah was built with contemporary Islamic architecture. Its mosques, governmental, main and official buildings, cultural and historical edifices, castles, forts, residential and commercial buildings, squares, squares, memorials and museums testify to that.

It was built in a variety of different styles, such as the Ottoman style with circular and semi-circular domes with minarets with pointed heads that depend on plant motifs (such as the mosques of light, forgiveness, al-Bataih, and al-Qasimiya), and the Mamluk style with large pointed domes and minarets that end with conical domes and geometric decorations, and the popular style based on Islamic foundations in construction, and Asian styles with stereoscopic decorations, Fatimid, Andalusian, Moroccan, and local styles.

It contains many elements such as domes, minarets, minarets, mashrabiyas, arches and marble columns with Islamic motifs of delicate details and Islamic and Quranic inscriptions, chandeliers and lighting commensurate with their inspirations, uniting its Islamic heritage between the authenticity of the past and the modernity of the present.

Therefore, it was proudly the capital of Islamic culture, attracting many visitors, tourists, intellectuals, and families through many events and festivals such as the Sharjah Lights Festival, Sharjah Heritage Days, Sharjah Biennial, and others, forming the architectural identity of the emirate, expressing its national, religious, and cultural identity.
