The Historical Sharjah

Sharjah is the third largest of the seven states which form the United Arab Emirates. The settlement of Sharjah dates back some 6,000 years when it is believed to have been called Sarcoa. The population was small and people relied o­n trade and seafaring in addition to, farming, hunting, fishing, and pearl diving. Many of the early settlements were based around the ‘falaj’, a man-made underground watercourse.

Sharjah has been a major Middle East tourist Destination since 1932! Tourists intending to visit Sharjah do not have to go far to get what they are interested in. That’s why Sharjah was the first emirate to attract tourist groups in 1980. Since then, tourism has developed in leaps and bounds.
