UNESCO Registers Al Ain

03/07/2011
The Oasis City of Al Ain - the emirate's second city and heritage heartland - has become the first site in the United Arab Emirates to make it to UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Classified by UNESCO as ‘cultural sites’, Al Ain world heritage locations include Jebel Hafeet, the 1,249 metre high peak – the highest in the emirate - which backdrops the city and which boasts 500 ancient burial tombs dating back 5,000 years in its foothills; the bronze and iron age sites of Al Hili; the tombs of the Bida Bin Saud area, as well as Al Ain’s ancient oases with their preserved traditional falaj system which irrigated palm groves and farms.
