Ajman is one of the seven emirates comprising the United Arab Emirates (UAE). With an area of just 260 square kilometres, Ajman is the smallest emirate by area. Its seat of government is Ajma-n, which is surrounded to its north, south, and east by Sharjah.
Located along the Persian Gulf, Ajman also controls Masfut and Manama, two small, inland enclaves that are primarily agricultural. Approximately 95% of the population of the emirate resides in the city of Ajman. The population was only 36,100 in 1980 but grew considerably in recent years, due to an influx of people from the neighboring emirates of Dubai, Sharjah, and other countries. Ajman is ruled by Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi of the Al Nuaimi tribe. The Crown Prince of the Emirate is Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi. Ajma-n has experienced massive development and a construction boom in recent years.
Ajman is the capital of the emirate of Ajman in the United Arab Emirates, located along the Persian Gulf. Ajman holds plenty of promises to tourists, owing to varied features of economic development currently prevailing in the emirates. Ajman is witnessing considerable growth and development, just like in the rest of the UAE, and therefore, tourist attractions and activities, including shopping, cultural and shopping opportunities are growing rapidly. The attractions for tourists include Ajman National Museum, Ajman Fort, Sheikh Zayed Ajman Mosque, Fish Market and Corniche Beach.
