Al Bastakiya  is a  historic district  in  Dubai ,  United Arab Emirates  (UAE). Together with  Al Shindagha , Al Bastakiya is one of the oldest residential areas in the city of Dubai. Al Bastakiya is named after the  Bastak  region of  Iran , from where many Iranians emigrated to Dubai in the early 18th century. The locality lies along  Dubai Creek  and includes narrow lanes and  wind towers , as well as the  Al Fahidi Fort , the oldest existing building in Dubai. Traditionally a stronghold of rich  Persian  merchants, the demographic of the locality changed with the discovery of oil, which resulted in many rich families relocating to other parts of the city.
