Mosque in Al Awir

This Sector is located in the north-eastern part of the Emirate of Dubai and is bordered to the north and east by the Emirate of Sharjah . The external border is marked to the north by the Maleha Road and to the east by the Nazwa Road, while the internal borders with the other sectors are marked to the north-west by the Emirates Road , and to the south-west by the Al Awir Road (E 44) which however in that stretch is called Dubai-Hatta Road.
