Unlike its glitzy modern neighbor, Sharjah is committed to Islamic customs and tradition, which earned it the title of Cultural Capital of the Arab World from UNESCO in 1998, and Capital of Islamic Culture in 2014. The richness of Sharjah is best found in its museums, mosques, and heritage sectors. Five thousand years of history are carefully preserved and proudly displayed in places like the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization, where you can see letters handwritten by the Prophet Mohammad. The Al Noos Mosque grants non-Muslim visitors rare entrance, and the King Faisal Mosque impresses with its architecture and sheer size.
