Full description
Experience Iftar or the “breaking of fast” held in the courtyard of the wind-towered cultural center in the Al Fahidi Historic District of Old Bur Dubai. Begin your evening with the Athan (the call to prayer) followed by the breaking of the fast with your hosts. Enjoy Arabic coffee and dates and then take a moment to watch your hosts pray before Iftar is served.  During the event, you are invited to ask any questions you may have about Ramadan, the culture, and the traditions of the UAE.  After the Iftar, visit the Diwan Mosque, before returning back with your hosts for dessert and tea.  Bring your kids and let them take part in kid-friendly activities including storytelling, arts and crafts, and live falconry.
