Beit-al-Ajaib (or House of Wonders or Palace of Wonders)

The Arabic term ‘Beit-al-Ajaib’ literally implies the House of Wonders or Palace of Wonders in English. The House of Wonders was built as a residential palace for the kings in 1883 and now is the largest and tallest building in the city. The building is now a home to the Museum of History & Culture of Zanzibar & the Swahili Coast.

The Old Fort

The Old Fort (locally known as Ngome Kongwe in Swahili language) is a late 17th century fortified structure and the oldest building in Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar. It is located next to the House of Wonders. The fort was built by the local rulers to defend the island from Portuguese invaders. During 19th century, the Old Fort was used as a prison to incarcerate and execute some of the most gruesome offenders of the kingdom. Its use was then switched to a railway depot from early to mid 20th century.

Hamamni Persian Baths

They are a historical building located in the national capital city of Stone Town, built on the orders of sultan Barghash bin Said during 1870 and 1888. Despite being made for a ruler in Zanzibar, they are termed ‘Persian’ because they were built by Persian architects. These baths consist of several rooms offering both hot and cold water, shaving areas, and a restaurant. A service here came at a premium and thus the baths were used only by royal members and affluent citizens.

Ithnashiri Dispensary (or Old Dispensary)

Ithnashiri Dispensary or Old Dispensary is a remarkable piece of architecture and a symbol of the multi-cultural heritage in Stone Town. It is hallmarked by wooden carved balconies, stained glass windows, Zanzibar’s coral stones and Neo-Classical Stucco decorations. The interiors are no less exemplary and they wow visitors with their well-designed courtyards and carved bridges across all floors. The Dispensary was made to be used as a charitable hospital for the poor and was built over a period of 7 years (1887 to 1894) to celebrate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.
