Hili Archaeological Park

Archaeological Site in Al Ain

Honoured as a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2011, these remarkable vestiges of a settlement and tombs dating back some 5000 years to the Umm Al Nar period open up a window on early life in the region. On the edge of town, they've been integrated into a peaceful park. A highlight is the Great Hili Tomb, whose two entrances are decorated with carvings of humans and antelopes.

The park is about 12km north of Al Ain's centre.
