Archaeological Site on Sir Bani Yas Island

  • Archaeological dig Christian monastery

Open to the public, this is the UAE's only discovered Christian monastery.

Believed to have been built around 600 AD, it was initially discovered on the island during excavations in 1992. Almost two decades since its discovery, and more than a thousand years since it was built, the public can visit the site and experience another piece of the rich tapestry that makes up the UAE's fascinating history.

A new phase of work is currently underway by archaeologists, and treasures are still being unearthed, making the site a significant focal point for history enthusiasts worldwide.
