Located in the rocky Hatta Mountains, you can get a glimpse of a historical village that goes back thousands of years. After intense renovation, Hatta Village now consists of 30 buildings made of mud, hay, sandalwood and palm fronds, just the way they were originally built. Overlooking the village are two towers, known as the "two stones" that were used as defense fortresses. Each building in the area provides a unique historical look at Dubai's past. Check out old weaponry, swords and guns displayed inside the Fortress which is where village meetings were held. The Sharia Mosque includes a large prayer hall and courtroom while the Folklore House reveals traditional Folklore poetry, "nabati," and musical instruments. Even kids can enjoy travelling back in time at the Children's Entertainment Area with traditional games and swings. You can also enjoy Hatta Village during one of the several heritage festivals throughout the year or with a guided tour.
