Hatta, United Arab Emirates
Hatta is a town (which includes a reconstructed heritage village by the same name) in the Hatta mountains in the north of the emirate of Dubai.
Hatta is about 115 km east of Dubai City. Because of its altitude, Hatta has a milder climate than the city of Dubai, making Hatta a popular vacation place for wealthy Dubai residents.
The old village of Hatta includes two prominent military towers from the 18th Century and the Juma mosque (built in 1780), the oldest building in Hatta, as well as about 30 loame houses. The reconstructed heritage village displays scenes from everyday life in the past. The traditional water supply (Falaj system) has also been repaired.
