Description: The Stone Town of Zanzibar is a select example of East Africa’s Swahili coastal trading towns. Its urban fabric and townscape are virtually unchanged, the site can still boast numerous fine buildings that manifest its individual culture, which has brought together and evened out incongruent elements of African cultures, the Arab region, India, and Europe over a millennium. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
