Historic monuments, ancient buildings, oases and natural heritage are the essential elements that constitute Abu Dhabi’s historic environment. It is part of TCA Abu Dhabi’s mandate to uncover traces of the emirate’s ancient civilisations, to document, preserve and ensure the maintenance of historic buildings, and to manage and develop culturally significant zones, including oases and archaeological sites. Not only does TCA Abu Dhabi aim to protect and maintain the tangible heritage of Abu Dhabi, but it also aspires to collect, safeguard, protect, document and study the intangible culture heritage and the history of the citizens if Abu Dhabi by celebrating, enhancing and promoting such heritage. This initiative is being supported via constant collaboration between TCA Abu Dhabi and other local and federal departments, authorities, ministries and NGOs.
