Ramadan Photo Walk | Old Dubai at Iftar

Appreciate the humble spirit of Ramadan in a neighborhood rich with mosques, break the fast with locals, and be part of the community.

What's Covered

During Ramadan, the usually-cacophonous streets of Old Dubai fall eerily silent just before sunset. Workers and neighbors gather on together briefly, lining the sprawling asphalt roads as all ears tune in to the local mosque. Everything, from businesses to traffic, grinds to a halt as people gather in preparation of breaking the fast, creating a stunning tableau right as the sun slips beyond the horizon and the Adhan, or call to prayer, reverberates through the sky. ​

 

Join the community for a swift Iftar snack and a cup of piping hot chai before the streets erupt into a vibrant neighborhood once again, filled with buzzing crowds and fleeting photo opportunities. With satisfied appetites and cameras brimming with captured moments, we will reflect on our favorite parts of the evening and consider the impact of the Covid-19 global pandemic on our communities as we bring the walk to a close.
