Graffiti Rock, or Qaryat al-Asba, is located at a two hour drive form the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh. These are actually Petroglyphs (prehistoric rock arts). They comprise etchings or carvings or sketches on large panels of rocks and are prehistoric. They give us an insight into the lives of people and animals present at that time. They supposedly date back to 3000 BC.
There are two rocky ‘hills’ in the middle of the desert, which can be climbed and allow one to view a slice of history from up close. There are various animals and war scenes depicted on the rocks, which have stood the test of centuries of sun, sandstorms, rain…..even hailstorms. Do not miss the opportunity to see this unique set of petroglyphs……good luck getting a visa!!!!!!!!
