It has preserved its original elements and its charming luster, which spanned the past 200 years, embodied in winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques, and large Arab homes, to be a unique urban cultural unit for this region.

The city combined its urban fabric that reflects its own culture with the homogeneous elements from the cultures of Africa, India, Europe and the Arab region. Most of the houses were built in Stone Town during the nineteenth century when Zanzibar was one of the most important commercial cities in the Indian Ocean.
