Mleiha 3 – Umm an-Nar Tomb

“Close to the Mleiha Archaeological Centre lies the Umm an-Nar tomb, which is considered to be the most impressive grave building among the many ancient funeral sites in the Mleiha area. Constructed around 2300 BCE, the burial site was used for approximately 200 years.

Measuring in at a huge 13.85m in diameter, this circular Bronze Age grave is one of the largest from the Umm an-Nar period throughout the whole of the UAE. The grave chamber is separated into an eastern and western half, each then further sub-divided into four units with doorways connecting one chamber to another.
