You can see the Sharjah biggest roundabout, covering an area of more than 60,000 square-meters in Al-Sour district. It's surrounded by The Islamic Mall, King Faisal mosque and Al-Khaldiya bridge. The roundabout overlooks the colourful flowerbeds which spell out the lighthearted message "Smile you are in Sharjah".
The Monument is placed in the middle of the area and is decorated with seven oysters each with a pearl inside which represent each of the seven Emirates. The seven oysters surround the central pillar, which is crowned with a golden pearl symbolizing the union of the Emirates. The monument is surrounded with water basin decorated with fountain and greenery, boarded with plants and palm trees. The area contains comfortable wide seats and lighting for convenience at night.
