Capital Gardens

This is the imposing entrance to Capital Gardens, located between Sheikh Khalifa & Sheikh Hamdan Street (a principal thoroughfare). It’s nearly 40 years old (which is ancient for here) and costs 1 Dirham ($27 cents) to enter. Tomorrow we will go inside!

Wow, I love it! What neat design. Does it do anything? Looks like an eternal flame would rise out of the center like the Olympic flame. Can't wait to go inside!

Isn't it cool! Don't think it does anything. I'll have to go after dark. Maybe there's a light or something.
