Al Ula Heritage Village

There are plans to make this a formal tourist venue in the near future, but for now you can enjoy freely wandering among the beautiful mud ruins where people lived for centuries. As well as visiting Al Ula Fort, it is worth trying to locate the tantura and old mosque. The ruins are dissected by the highway: those on the upper west side have been renovated considerably, while the lower east side is wonderfully raw.

Al-Ula Heritage Village, is the traditional Arabian village where people of the oasis moved some 8 centuries ago and inhabited until the 20th century. It was built on a higher part of the valley in order to be clear from the floods that can occur during the raining season. At its maximum expansion the town contained over 1 000 houses that were built adjacent to one another thereby forming a wall around the town to defend the population.
