Introducing Sakaka

Remote and rural Sakaka has a host of little-visited archaeological sights, particularly Rajajil (Standing Stones; opposite) 25km from town.

Lady Anne Blunt and her husband Wilfred visited Sakaka (which they called Meskakeh) in 1879; Lady Blunt’s book, A Pilgrimage to Najd, provides a rare portrait of Arabian society in that era.
