Beyt al Chai is, naturally, located in the famous Kelele Square at the heart of Zanzibar's renowned Stone Town. The Zanzibar Stone Town was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year 2000.
The location has an interesting history. A wealthy Arab merchant originally built this fabulous old building. In the years that followed, its square became a favourite haunt of the European residents of the town. Folklore has it that the square was christened, Kelele - Swahili for noise - because of the noisy dogs that the Europeans brought with them.
