Welcome to Shisr

According to legend, Ubar, otherwise known as the Atlantis of the Sands, was the crossroads of the ancient frankincense trail. Scholars are fairly certain that the place existed, that it controlled the frankincense trade and was highly prosperous as a result, but therein lies the end of the certainties. Suffice to say, if you travel out here, bring with you an imagination and a dose of healthy scepticism.
