Top Heritage Sites of Saudi Arabia and AlUla
Hegra (Maidan Saleh)
Saudi Arabia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city of Hegra was carved into a rocky desert landscape by the Nabateans, the same ancient architects behind Petra in Jordan. Explore the archeological site’s well-preserved tombs and Rock Art Trail with more than 1500 petroglyphs.
Among AlUla’s most significant discoveries is the city of Dadan, the capital of the long-forgotten kingdoms of Dadan and Lihyan. Mentioned in the Old Testament, Dadan was built meticulously from stone alongside the valley’s oasis and thrived between the late 9th and early 8th century BCE.
Thousands of pre-Arabic inscriptions across numerous sites make AlUla an important location in studying the Arabic language. None are as significant as the mountain of Jabal Ikmah, a vast open-air library housing the region’s most varied and highly concentrated inscriptions.
AlUla Old Town
Set within modern AlUla, the old town offers a fascinating maze of mudbrick houses built on a slight elevation and overlooked by a 10th-century citadel. Occupied since the 12th century and well into the not-so-distant past, AlUla’s old town is now a conservation site.
