Dar es Salaam (meaning "haven of peace" in Arabic) was established in the 1860s as summer residence for the sultan of Zanzibar. In 1896 it was developed by German colonists and became capital of German East Africa. The city of Dar es Salaam fell to British control in 1916. However, in 1961 it became the capital of newly independent Tanganyika and in 1964 when Tanganyika and Zanzibar were merged to form Tanzania. In 1974 Dodoma was designated new capital of Tanzania.
