📢Hatta Village has been opened after its restoration in 2001. The village is located in the heart of Hatta mountainous area within the emirate of Dubai, about 100 km away from Dubai City, overlooking two mountains which were traditionally called "Hajaran" or "Hajarin" in olden days. ☝️The history of the village dates back to about 2,000 to 3,000 years ago. It has 30 buildings, shops for selling traditional heritage collections, a group of neighbouring farms with a fresh water canal (Falaj) running through them and an archaeological cemetery (closed). ✅The village is a historical monument which is a magnet for tourists from all over the world, where it hosts the events of UAE National Day, Dubai Shopping Festival and Flag Day among others. ▶️A visit to Hatta Heritage Village is an opportunity to know about a different traditional life in Dubai, in spite of its similarity to the traditional lifestyle in the city of Dubai, in general. The details of that style and its atmosphere reflect a distinct and unique personality which enrich, represent and add to the traditional way of life in the emirate of Dubai. 🛠One will also observe the strong attachment of the man belonging from old Hatta to his own land, as his only profession was agriculture, for which the Hatta area is famous. Moreover, the village inhabitants exploited the natural resources, as they built their houses from mountain rocks. They also used copper and metal, found in abundance in the Hatta Mountains, for the manufacturing of various tools including utensils, weapons, equipment and ornaments.
