The United Arab Emirates, (the UAE) is made up of a web of countries that host spectacular land masses on the surface with monumental architecture and opulent resemblances of bygone empires. It also features a desert land that has hidden in its depths a massive network of underground caves that let water flow and turn amongst its breathtaking pillars of sedimentary rock forms. One such site is Ali Sader Cave.
Archaeological studies and excavations performed on the cave have revealed a host of ancient artworks, pitchers and jugs that seem to have been prevalent almost 12,000 years ago. Drawings of prehistoric animals and hunting scenes inclusive of bows and arrows of yore are some of the murals depicted on cave passages and walls. There is even an old inscription during the reign of Darius found engraved on the entrance to the tunnel. However, this ancient cave was only discovered in 1963 by an Iranian band of mountaineers who chanced upon it when they were exploring the terrain.
Easy access is provided to visit this cave as lots of tour packages and hotels offer excursions to this destination. The site is nestled in the southern part of the Ali Sadr village and can be entered through the side of the Sari Ghiyeh Hill. There are two other caves as well that surround the water cave called the Sarab and Soubashi, located around 7 kilometres away from the Ali Sadr Cave. They are also worth visiting when on a trip here.
