Riyadh – Asdaf News:
Visitors can experience a vivid representation of Emirati heritage and traditions at the Heritage Village, which is one of the Sheikh Zayed Festival's events.
A replica of each of the four primary environments where the Emirati civilization settled and thrived can be found in the Heritage Village, which is central to the Sheikh Zayed Festival grounds. These environments are the marine environment, the desert environment, the mountain environment, and the agricultural environment. Visitors are given glimpses into early UAE life through each reproduction thanks to life-size mock-ups that were made to accurately represent those locations.
The Heritage Village was created using the distinctive traditional architecture and bears the inscription“Hayakom,” which in Emirati dialect means“Welcome.” The gates are replicas of military structures from antiquity that acted as barriers against outside dangers.
With its mud and palm leaf buildings that induce nostalgia and pique curiosity in the UAE's cultural heritage, the Heritage Village is a remarkable stop that transports visitors away from the modern world and into the simplicity of life in earlier times.
The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation, Emirates Falconers Club, Abu Dhabi's Arabian Saluki Centre, Emirates Heritage Club, and Abu Dhabi Marine Sports Club all worked together to create the Heritage Village as a result of their shared desire to preserve and promote Emirati culture to the general public. The Heritage Village has a UAE Heritage Studio where tourists and guests can take priceless pictures while dressed in traditional Emirati attire, both for women and men. The studio has a historic grocery store called“Al Dukan,” which stocks a variety of antiquated foods that Emiratis find nostalgic, as well as a henna tinting station where guests may observe the usage of the oldest and most popular cosmetic product still in use today.
To familiarize the general public with the manner of life of their Emirati ancestors, the Heritage Village offers a wide range of arts and crafts options, including ceramics, cutting-edge tools, and traditional clothing.
