Covering an area of 46,000 square meters just opposite Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Wahat Al Karama is a cultural landmark built to commemorate the UAE’s heroes. It reflects the UAE’s pride and gratitude towards all those who have given their lives to uphold the country’s sovereignty, dignity, and values.
The 31 massive aluminum-clad engraved panels of The Memorial are the most prominent feature of Wahat Al Karama, which also includes a wide 4,000-square-metre circular space with a reflective pool – The Memorial Plaza.
Visitors can head to the Visitors’ Center (open every day from 9:00am to 7:00pm) to join one of two daily tours (10:00am or 5:00pm).
Wahat Al Karama also houses the Pavilion of Honor – a solid, regular polygon structure with a circular internal wall bearing the names of the UAE’s heroes. The site is open to the public, free of charge, every day from 9:00am until 10:00pm.
