Durbar, initially a military parade, conceived to assess the military state of readiness and a show of fealty to the Emir, has become a purely ceremonial festival associated with the Eids, welcoming of visiting dignitaries and the installation of new Emirs. The Durbar entertains, instructs, excites and dignifies political power structure. It is essentially a dexterous display of horsemanship and brilliant exhibition of a people’s cultural heritage and traditions.
