Abu Dhabi designates 64 sites for cultural protection

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism has announced the protection of 64 cultural sites in line with the new Cultural Heritage law.






Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism has announced the protection of 64 cultural sites in line with the new Cultural Heritage law.

Providing immediate and unconditional protection of these sites, all of the 64 locations are now protected from demolition and will be given priority for maintenance and rehabilitation.

Protected sites include the likes of Al Manhal Palace, the first purpose-built presidential palace where the flag was raised when the country joined the UN in 1971; as well as locations including the Cultural Foundation, National Theatre, the Ail Ain Old Central Market and the former Al Jazeera Hospital.

“Part of DCT Abu Dhabi’s mission includes preserving Abu Dhabi’s culture and identity,” said Mohammed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of DCT Abu Dhabi. “Our architectural and urban heritage is an extremely important element of our recent history, which deserves to be recognised and protected.”
