Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood is a historic district in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The construction of Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood dates back to the 1890s. In its prime, the locality was capable of supporting 60 housing units, most of which were separated by narrow, winding lanes. The town of Al Bastakiya was primarily built by immigrants from the city of Bastak, Persia who left their native homeland due to ongoing religious persecution, as well as tax breaks and incentives offered by the Emerati government.
In the 1980s half of the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood village was destroyed to make way for the development of a new office complex. The remaining houses were mostly used as warehouses or accommodation for foreign laborers.
