The architecture of Zanzibar is a unique synthesis between the east African coast and the lands across the Indian Ocean, reflecting social and cultural interaction between the regions over more than 2000 years. Four major streams have merged here to give birth to a fascinating amalgam: The Swahili building tradition developed along the coast over more than a millennium. The elegant simplicity of the massive Omani square houses introduced from the late eighteenth century. The extrovert Indian embellishment added during the nineteenth. The colonial intervention during the twentieth century which made itself more palatable by orientalising itself. These traditions are expressed most sharply in the religious institutions associated with them, the mosques, the temples and the churches, and in the Zanzibar doors, but they are much more integrated in domestic architecture.
