Hatta Heritage Village, Dubai Overview

Hatta Heritage Village is a mountain village which is reconstructed and extensively renovated to give visitors an insight into what ancient Emirati villages looked like. Amidst Al Hajar Mountains in Hatta, the village is almost 3000 years old, but in a perfectly revamped condition. The rural landscape is flecked with a cluster of farms chiselled by a freshwater canal, quaint shops selling customary heritage collections and an archaeological cemetery.

Matching the originality of a mountain village, every structure within the Hatta Heritage Village is built with materials such as mud, fronds, palm tree trunks, stone and reed which were actually used to make buildings and structure in most of the Emirati villages. The Hatta Heritage Village is located inside the historic fort that has a reception room locally known as Majlis, a conventional house with courtyard and various palm-leaf structures. The traditional houses, fortresses, and castles exhibit antiques and artefacts on local music, weaponry, palm-tree products, weaving, traditional dress, handicrafts, and old village society.
