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.
