From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dar Al Khaleej Printing & Publishing ( Arabic: دار الخليج للطباعة والنشر) is a publishing house based in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The company was established in 1970 with the launch of the daily Al Khaleej newspaper.

The company, whose name literally means Gulf House, was founded by brothers Taryam Omran Taryam (1942–2002) and Abdullah Omran Taryam (1948–2014).

Dar Al Khaleej struggled to survive in its first decade, and the newspaper was stopped from 1972 to 1980.

The purchase of new printing equipment in the 1990s enabled the company to increase the number of pages and print other publications. Al Khaleej is now one of the most popular Arabic-language newspapers in the country.[ citation needed]
