Introducing Madain Saleh

If you can only visit one place in Saudi Arabia, make it Madain Saleh. This crossroads of ancient civilisations, pilgrims, explorers, trade caravans and armies finds its most remarkable expression in the elaborate stone-carved tombs of the Nabataeans. Although the tombs are less spectacular than the misnamed ‘Treasury’ at better-known Petra in Jordan, the setting of sweeping sand and remarkable rock formations is unique and unsurpassed.
