The iftar canon is traditionally fired across the UAE during Ramadan. It is a way to revive an old tradition that was a means to mark the end of the fasting period.

There are 23 locations in the UAE where you can watch the canon being fired, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Mother of the Nation Park in Abu Dhabi and the Downtown Dubai, Burj Khalifa district.

Those in Sharjah and the Northern Emirates can also witness this feat at the Al Majaz Waterfront and the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Fujairah.
