Best known for its cultural attractions, Ajman boasts of the Mowaihat archeological site situated in its outskirts. Discovered accidentally in the year 1986, the site unearthed various Umm- al- Nar ceramic vessels, tombs, various copper elements, more than 3000 beads and corpse remains of many humans. For archaeology fans, Ajman’s Mowaihat is one of the most famous sites in UAE.

It is an archaeological site which is located towards the outskirts of Ajman. When the place was discovered, the Mowaihat tomb was a sign of Umm al-Nar civilization in the Northern Emirates. Further excavation, revealed that this period also existed in the other major cities of Gulf of Al Sufouh, Tell Abraq and Shimal. Here are several pieces of evidence, such as tools, toys and other items of daily life used along with the skeletons of the original inhabitants of the area. However, most items that were obtained from Mowaihat, are displayed in the Ajman Museum and form the largest part of the museum's exhibition.
