Ekma

Landmark in Northern Saudi Arabia

Ekma is a huge stone believed by some to be where the Prophet Saleh delivered a camel – a gift from God to the Thamud people, who had challenged Saleh to perform a miracle. Archaeologists consider Ekma, also spelled Ikma, a vital window into Madain Saleh's past.

It's around 3km northwest of Al Ula, off Rte 375.
