Bait Al Wakeel

The first office building of Dubai which was fully devoted to administration alone, Bait Al Wakeel is situated at the abra landing edge of Dubai Creek (Deira side). Bait Al Wakeel was constructed by late Sheikh Rashid in 1934 following the style of early 20th century architecture. Renovated completely in 1995, Bait Al Wakeel is now a museum that exhibits ancient maritime activities and fishing tradition of the city dwellers. Sheikh Saeed Al-Makhtoum House, a museum that houses pictures and photographs of Al-Makhtoum family along generations, is also located at the Dubai Creek - at the Shindagha waterfront area of the Creek. Bait Al Wakeel had high importance in the export-import sector of Dubai in yesteryears. After its construction, Bait Al Wakeel was undertaken by Gray Mackenzie to house their shipping office. Legend has it that Bait Al Wakeel boasted of holding the largest living space of the city in this period and the manager of the company along with his family had the opportunity to occupy this area for a long period of time. Along with the museum which sketches the ancient maritime activities and fishing tradition of the city, Bait Al Wakeel at present, houses a restaurant specialized in seafood with Arabic and Emaratic delicacies. Dine at Turathi in Bait Al Wakeel while you are in Dubai Creek.The description on Bait Al Wakeel would be incomplete without mentioning the significance of Dubai Creek, the place at which it is located. Fourteen kilometers long Dubai Creek is a major tourist attraction of the city, though the extent to which this creek supports foreign exchange and trade may not be fully evident to a common tourist. Along eight wharfages of the Creek, around 720 thousand tones of cargo is exchanged with neighboring countries like Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and India every year. The Creek can accommodate as many as 31 ships at one time with a net weight cap of 800 tones. Disputation haustellum remotability heterosmia endowments.
