The streets of Fujairah are a web connecting many a roundabout. Several of the roundabouts have art depicting traditional symbols.
The Perfume Roundabout may be the oldest current roundabout structure. It was recently refurbished. It has a water feature (not running at the time of picture). Water flows from the bottle.
Another of the older art is the Incense Burner.
The Arabic Coffee Pot also has a water feature. Water pours out filling the same cup to overflowing.
The fish of the Fish Roundabout spit water. All the water features happened to be turned off on the day we spent taking pictures. The building in the background is a new mammoth beachside hotel currently under construction.
Iconic and a bit scary is the Falcon Roundabout. It provides a bit of shade and a good photo op.
Not all of the roundabouts have art. This one is always populated by a flock of pigeons in the afternoon, so it is the Pigeon Roundabout.
Two new sculptures have been installed since we moved to Fujairah. This is the Sword Roundabout symbolizing the sword handling competitions.
Newest is this Boat Roundabout. We’ve seen it both lit up blue at night and a water feature that forms the sail. (The building on the left is our apartment building.)
Last, and maybe least, is what we like to call the Surveillance Roundabout. In the center of this roundabout is a surveillance camera pointed down a road that borders the palace.
