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.
