Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the capital United Arab Emirates and the centre of the Abu Dhabi Metropolitan Area. The city is located on an island in the Central West Coast of the Persian Gulf. Most of the city and the Emirate reside on the mainland connected to the rest of the country. Abu Dhabi's urban area had an estimated population of 1.5 million out of 2.9 million in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi houses local and federal government offices and is the home of the United Arab Emirates Government and the Supreme Petroleum Council. The city is home to the UAE's President, a member of the Al Nahyan family.
Abu Dhabi's rapid development and urbanization, coupled with the massive oil and gas reserves and production and relatively high average income, have transformed it into a large, developed metropolis. It is the country's center of politics and industry, and a major culture and commerce center.


Abu Dhabi and its surroundings is full of archaeological evidence from historical civilizations such as the Umm an-Nar Culture, which dates back from the third millennium BC.


Abu is Arabic for father, and Dhabi is the Arabic word for gazelle. Abu Dhabi literally means Father of Gazelle. It is thought that this name came about because of the abundance of gazelles in the area and a folk tale involving Shakhbut bin Dhiyab al Nahyan.
The Al Nahyan family member Bani Yas was originally centered on the Liwa Oasis in the Emirate's western region.

The legend

According to one popular version of the legend, Abu Dhabi was established by a group of nomadic Bani Yas tribesmen led by a visionary leader named Shakhbut bin Dhiyab Al Nahyan. The story goes that in the late 18th century, Shakhbut had a vivid dream where he saw a gushing freshwater well surrounded by lush greenery in the midst of the desert. Inspired by this vision, he embarked on a quest to find this paradise and establish a settlement there.

Pearl trade

Decorated stone cup from Umm Al Nar site, Abu Dhabi on display at the Louvre Abu Dhabi The pearl diving business was a key industry prior to the discovery of oil reserves. According to a source about pearling, the Persian Gulf was the best location for pearls.
Pearl divers dive for one to three minutes and would have dove up to thirty times per day. Air tanks and any other sort of mechanical device was forbidden. The divers had a leather nose clip and leather coverings on their fingers and big toes to protect them while they searched for oysters. The divers were not paid for a day's work but received a portion of the season's earnings.


Abu Dhabi has a hot desert climate. Sunny blue skies can be expected throughout the year. The months of June through September are generally extremely hot and humid with maximum temperatures averaging above 40 °C (104 °F), mainly occurring during the peak summer months of July and August. During this time, sandstorms occur intermittently, in some cases reducing visibility to a few meters. The cooler season is from November to March, which ranges between moderately hot to mild. This period also sees dense fog on some days and a few days of rain. On average, January is the coolest month of the year, while August is the hottest. Since the Tropic of Cancer passes through the emirate, the southern part falls within the Tropics.
However, despite the coolest month having an 18.8 °C (65.8 °F) average, its climate is far too dry to be classed as tropical.

See the beauty of the new moon rising
and pierces the darkness with its light
It looks like a golden sickle reaping the narcissus
among the flowers in the gardens.
