Abu Shagara is a district in Sharjah near the Al Majaz waterfront and on the border of Sharjah’s Industrial Areas. For many years it was famous for its used car market where rows and rows of second hand cars could be found. In recent times however the Sharjah Municipality has made it illegal to sell second hand cars in Abu Shagara and the area has become more quieter and with far less traffic to deal with. The used car market has now shifted to Al Ruqah Al Hamra.
