Sharjah’s majestic mosques and the dazzling beauty of their magnificent architecture and motifs have been put in the limelight and celebrated like never before by the Sharjah Light Festival 2020 that continues till Feb.15.
The Sharjah Light Festival 2020, the grand celebration of architectural grandeur, culture and art of illumination, has once again turned the spotlight on the emirate’s iconic buildings, monuments and cultural and tourist attractions at 19 locations across Sharjah.
The Sharjah Light Festival is a must-go event for us. The spectacular play of light and sound was exceptionally good this year, so much so that my children visited some of the venues more than thrice during the duration of the festival (“A symphony of colours, melody, architectural grandeur marks Sharjah Light Festival,” Feb.12, Gulf Today).
Sharjah has emerged as a favourite tourism destination for visitors from around the world. It has rightly been recognised as the home of Arab and Islamic culture
As the 10th edition of Sharjah Light Festival (SLF 2020) is enthralling one and all at 19 locations across the emirate, it is the University City area with its many beautiful buildings that has been attracting a big number of visitors with some exciting and unusual shows.
The festival promises 11 nights of unforgettable experiences as the shows will once again turn the spotlight on Sharjah’s 19 celebrated monuments, historic landmarks and culture.
Visitors to the permanent cinema, which has a capacity of 150 vehicles, will be allocated specific parking spaces, depending on the size of their car, and will be able to access the sound of the movie via FM radio.
