The Hili archaeological park lies in a nicely landscaped compound about 10km north of the centre of Al Ain, on the site of a Bronze age (3rd millennium BC) site of the Umm an-Nar culture. The park contains the remains of two circular tombs, of which a 12 meter diameter one has been reconstructed. It also contains the remains of an ancient settlement and the foundations of a building. The cultural sites of Al Ain (Hafit, Hili, Bidaa Bint Saud and Oases Areas) have been a UNESCO world heritage site since 2011.
