More spacious better light for photography than Petra. Not nearly as much to see as these were purely graves for the Nabateans - they are busy uncovering the city that kept the graves full. No matter how many times you see it, you can't fail to be impressed by their plumbing. There's also the famous railway that T E Lawrence... 更多
Amazing that this place is relatively unknown, despite being a UNESCO heritage site (the first of only 4 in Saudi), and built by the Nabateans of Petra fame. Absolutely stunning place, well managed, and free! You can drive your car up to these monuments, can walk around freely, enjoy the vast site early in the morning or late in the... 更多
My Saudi friends did not like the fact that I was going to Madaín Salah - said it was cursed - land of tombs - just incredible - to think that these people actually carved these massive beautiful buildings out of the rock - great for photography
Wonderful experience: one of the few places in the world that you can really explore these ancient ruins. Traveled in the cooler December months - stunning scenery and great history. A must do for Saudi.
beautiful for visiting specially during summer season where it us very quite and no more tourists wonderful city with its mountain which called the old mud village
The ruins at Mada'in Saleh are a unique site. Many compare this to Petra, but the site is quite different with its own history and unique geography. A must see if you are visiting Saudi Arabia. The neighbouring town of Al Ula also has unique archeological sites that are worth a visit.
Mada'in Saleh is a series of tombs and caverns carved out of the rocks in the Al Ula region. It was the site of the Nabateans' second largest city, and part of the main spice trade route between the East and the West. Most of the ancient city can no longer be seen, but there are plans to do an... 更多
The Nabateans came here after leaving Petra and this is their necropolis. It is very spread out so you do need a car not just to get here but to see all the tombs once here. There are a great many, some quite ornate and others not much more than a cave.
More Nabatean architecture but in a much more dramatic scenery than Petra, and without hordes of visitors, which is amazing as you can stand back and be in awe of the place. Additionally, they have made a museum of the Hejaz Railway Station at the site, which seems to have been a large station, complete with hospital and jail for... 更多
