UAE pays tribute to the nation’s heroes at Wahat Al Karama every Saturday for five months.
This ceremony will feature the UAE Armed Forces, military musicians from the Ministry of Interior and horses from Abu Dhabi Police. The ceremony will give visitors the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic show and take photographs with the horses, followed by a guided tour which will highlight the main attractions of the site.
Wahat Al Karama is a permanent tribute and war memorial to honor UAE’s martyred soldiers and other Emiratis who have sacrificed their lives for the service of the nation. Wahat Al Karama is where H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s vision to immortalize the memories of the heroes of the country, comes to life.
The massive expanse of the 46,000 square meters wide monument is symbolically located between the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the General Headquarters of the UAE Armed Forces, using 31 massive aluminum-clad tablets – each leaning on the other, signifying the unity, solidarity and mutual support that bind together leadership, the citizens and the servicemen and women who protect them.
