The Hatta Heritage Village was first opened to the public in 2001. Located in the heart of the rocky Hatta Mountains it offers visitors with a fascinating glimpse into Dubai’s historical past.
Dominated by the two towers overlooking the village, known as the “two stones”, which were used as defensive fortresses, Hatta Heritage Village can be traced back to before 2000 B.C. and consists of 30 buildings, each different in size, interior layout and building materials.
Hatta Heritage Village is a reconstruction of a traditional mountain village located in Hatta, in the Al Hajar Mountains, Dubai. The mosque and houses within Hatta Heritage Village were originally constructed from materials such as mud, palm tree trunks and fronds (Barasti), reeds, and stone. The village consists of 30 buildings, many of which have interior furnishings typical of the UAE in the period prior to development in the 1960s onwards.
