The Sultanate of Oman, represented by the Royal Court Affairs, in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Youth and the Omani National Commission for Education, Culture and Science, succeeded in registering the Royal Hijanna on the list of intangible cultural heritage of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO).
This came during the Sultanate of Oman’s participation in the eleventh meeting of the Heritage Committee in the Islamic World, which began today at the organization’s headquarters in the Moroccan capital, Rabat, and will continue for two days.
The registration of the Royal Haggana comes as it is the first Omani institution concerned with highlighting the best practices for preserving the intangible cultural heritage represented by camels and the social customs associated with them. This international recognition confirms the role of the Royal Haggana in preserving the intangible cultural heritage through the roles it provides in preserving breeds. Authentic Omani care for camels and interest in this ancient cultural heritage.
Through its vision, the Royal Haggana works to preserve all practices and arts related to camels by organizing the His Majesty the Sultan’s Camel Cup race, heritage festivals, and participating in various celebrations by presenting the camels’ display skills and musical performances on their backs, in addition to its participation in conferences, exhibitions, and special scientific seminars with camels inside and outside the Sultanate of Oman.
