Madain Saleh, the ancient wonder kept in the far lands of Madinah, is an old settlement of the Nabatean Kingdom. Madain Saleh was the biggest settlement after the famous Petra found in Jordan at that era.
Over a hundred enormous tombs, cut in boulders, give the place its awesome archeological marvel. 131 monuments with elaborate architectural details have been proclaimed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization [UNESCO] as Saudi Arabia’s first World Heritage Site.
Though the place has been ill-described by the Quran as a place of idol worship and place smitten by Allah with earthquake and lightning, this wonder is a tourist spot a visiting Filipino should never miss.
