Deerah town or Dayra is the oldest town on Tarut Island and the highest town because of the buildings that have been built on top of each other since 5000 B.C. Its houses are considered to be heritage buildings of the Arabic Gulf. Unfortunately almost all of the houses are destroyed and are gone because of neglect and urbanization. Many of the homes house poor people still today. Anyone can reach it them easily from inside the city. Neighboring cities are connected by new roads.
