CULTURAL SITE – AL AIN – AL AIN OASIS

Covering 1,200 hectares, this lush oasis provides a unique insight into the region's inhabitants who began taming the desert more than 4,000 years ago. Located in the centre of Al Ain, Abu Dhabi's Garden City and heritage heartland situated about a one-and-a-half-hour's drive away from the capital, this is the largest of Al Ain's oases. Farmers tend to thousands of date palms of different varieties, as well as fodder crops and fruit trees, such as mango, orange, banana, fig and jujube (known locally as sidr).

Individual plots and working farms are separated from each other by historic boundary walls. Al Ain Oasis has working examples of the falaj that have been used for centuries. There are two main falaj systems serving the oasis: Al Aini and Al Dawoudi. They provide water to two separate parts of the oasis and both come from the southeast.
