About Hili Archaeological Park

The Hili Archaeological Park and Gardens is a Bronze Age site located just north of Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates.

It was in use in the 3rd millennium BC and ruins include settlements, tombs, and a later Iron Age falaj (irrigation channel) which made use of water from nearby springs well into the Iron Age.

Today the Hili Archaeological Park has been sculpted as both an historic site and public garden and is a popular place to relax and explore for both tourists and locals.

One outstanding monument is the Hili Grand tomb, some 12m in diameter with meticulously cut stone blocks and animal/human images at the entrances. These archaeological finds belong to the Umm Al-Nar culture.
