Description

Mada’in Saleh is an archeological treasure hidden in the middle of the Saudi desert. With more than 130 monumental rock-carved tombs, it was, after Petra, the second most important city of the Nabataean Kingdom. But how did this remote location come to be such an important center for that civilization?
