Noria Wheel water feature

Sonia

Step through the grand entrance at Qasr Al Sultan and you will be greeted by a traditional noria water wheel and authentic Arabian majlis.
The word “noria” comes from the Arabic term, Na-urah, meaning “the first water machine” and its use in arid or desert climes is seen as a reason why these regions have prospered as the noria water wheels were used to collect water from rivers for use in irrigation as well for local dwellings.
Take in the simple but cleverly designed noria water wheel as you unwind on the majlis around it, ready for your glorious experience at Qasr Al Sultan.
