The Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) was established in July 2017 to preserve Diriyah’s history, celebrate its community and develop the historic site into one of the world’s greatest gathering places, creating a hub for Saudi Arabian culture and heritage.
We are focused on the protection and preservation of the Kingdom’s history including the stories of our forefathers as well as our physical heritage. In line with design, development and preservation standards, the DGDA will create an environment that enhances Diriyah’s historic, national and international relevance.
The DGDA aspires to develop Diriyah into a global gathering place by creating rich experiences that narrate the stories of our history, instilling a sense of Saudi Arabian pride and creating globally renowned destinations and landmarks.
We are devoted to enabling the people of Diriyah to achieve their goals. The DGDA will celebrate the local community, showing social, cultural and historical achievements, connecting with the roots of the Saudi state and creating solid foundations on which to build the best possible future for the community.
Working alongside Diriyah’s executive bodies, the DGDA is the primary regulator for the supervisory area (190sqkm) and will exercise best practices in Land Management and Building Permit and License issuance and oversight.
