Dating back to about 2,000 to 3,000 years ago, Hatta Heritage Village is located in the heart of Hatta mountainous area within the emirate of Dubai.
The village was opened to the public in February 2001 after extensive renovation and reconstruction developments, and is currently owned and managed by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.
It has 30 buildings, shops for selling traditional heritage collections, a group of neighbouring farms with a fresh water canal running through them and an archaeological cemetery. The mosque and houses within the village were originally constructed from materials such as mud, palm tree trunks and fronds (Barasti), reeds, and stone.
Spanning an area of 40,588 square meters, the village hosts a number of events, such as UAE National Day, Dubai Shopping Festival, Flag Day and others. Thus, it is considered a historical monument that attracts both residents and tourists from all over the world.
Visitors to Hatta Village will have a unique opportunity to experience and discover the model of traditional mountainous rural life in the emirate of Dubai.
The village is home to 17 houses, 2 castles and a fortress that are displaying original prototypes, models, documents, maquettes/sculptures, illustrations and graphic/audio materials for various aspects of traditional life in that region. There are also several frond buildings and a masjid.
