With more than 200,000 years of unknown human history, AlUla is a place of remarkable natural and human legacy. Surprisingly, there are many things to do in this isolated kingdom area. You can choose to go on an adventure, enjoy great dining, or visit kingdom's first UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to centuries' worth of archaeological artifacts and documentation of ancient customs that are still practiced today.
AlUla is the location of innumerable historical artifacts hidden deep among the stunning deserts of the country's northwest. These treasures include Hegra, designated as the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Saudi Arabia, a Nabatean city. Additionally, it contains the tombs of Dadan, the capital of the Dadanite and Lihyanite Kingdoms, which were built of stone. In the 12th century, pilgrims made frequent pit stops at the old town remains in AlUla.
AlUla's status as a center of modern and current culture is equally remarkable. The destination's signature events and festival calendar are listed as 'AlUla Moments.' This foundation aims to generate moments of excitement, delight, and discovery in the areas of arts, culture, music, wellness, and more, for locals and tourists alike.
Be a part of the famous Tantora festival conducted in the recently built Maraya performance hall in Al Ula, Saudi Arabia. The Arabic word 'Maraya,' which means 'reflection' or 'mirror,' is situated not far from Hegra, Saudi Arabia's first UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This city is situated in an area of breathtaking natural beauty, with cliffs and canyons that are home to prehistoric petroglyphs and rock art. It has an alien atmosphere. Since there is no light pollution, practically every star in the sky is visible. Since there is no traffic and no skyscrapers, the air is clean, and the views are completely unhindered. The rock formations in the shapes of an elephant and a mushroom contribute to the surreal feeling.
