Ajman Map

Ajman, also spelt Ujman, is one of the seven emirates constituting the United Arab Emirates (UAE). With an area of just 260 square kilometres (100 sq mi), Ajman is the smallest emirate by area. Its seat of government is Ajman, which is bordered on 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 36,000 in 1980 but grew considerably in recent years, due to an influx of people from the neighbouring 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. Ajmn has experienced massive development and a construction boom in recent years.

After the success of freehold property in Dubai, Ajman was the second emirate to offer freehold property.Ajman is currently the only emirate in the UAE offering investors of any nationality fully transparent true 100% freehold ownership on real estate, which in turn has attracted a huge number of investors (local and international) to this emirate. This in turn has prompted the Ajman government to initiate a number of development projects. New Ajman was the name given to the area being developed outside of the current Ajman city, located by the Emirates Road. New Ajman was supposed to consist of many new developments and projects envisioned by Chief of Municipality Sheikh Rashid Al Nuaimi. One of the first developments of New Ajman is called "The Emirates City", a brand new city located directly on the Emirates Road to be built from scratch and consisting of more than 100 mid- and high-rise buildings. A number of shopping malls, hotels and residential villas were also planned to eventually extend all the way to the 'Al Zoura' area, where beachside developments were planned. Almost none of these projects ever got started.[5] Investors from all over the world lost millions of dollars. The government, due to its totalitarian character, never was held responsible for any damage done to these investors.

The construction of Ajman International Airport began in the second half of 2008 in the Al Manama area of the Ajman, but is at a stand still today. Airport operations were scheduled to begin by 2011, and the airport was expected to host about two million passengers per year. The airport is now projected to be completed by 2015. Work however has not started as of 2011, and it is doubtful it will be completed in the foreseeable future.
