Quoting the news from Republicworld , Thursday (10/12/2020), this site was built in the 1st century AD. Hegra is known as Madain Saleh or Al-Hijr which is centered on the tomb of Qasr al-Farid (The Lonely Castle).
This UNESCO World Heritage Site belonging to Saudi Arabia was built by the Nabataean Kingdom. The archaeological site north of Al-Ula is now open to tourists.
The iconic Madain Saleh was built by the Nabataean Tribe in a unique style. This destination is a virgin who has not been disturbed for nearly 2,000 years.
The Saudi Arabian government has recently opened the 'Hegra' website to the general public. This historical destination witnesses the Nabataean civilization from the 2nd and 3rd century BC.
According to a news release by Alula's royal commission for Saudi Arabia, the site with stone construction can now be seen by tourists. Arrivals will be taken on a planned trip.
Madain Saleh or Hegra in Saudi Arabia brought to life by architect Jean Nouvel. This architecture takes a curatorial approach as it tells the stories of thousands of years ago.
The Madain Saleh site is a fine mix of landscapes and historical experiences for tourists. The tomb depicts a Nabataean lifestyle, and the monumental designs carved into the rock show the architectural legacy of ancient civilizations, Nouvel said in the release.
The Hegra site is prohibited from being approached by tourists and is located within the Sharman Nature Reserve. Nouvel describes the site as a unique place and it is a very large masterpiece.
Madain Saleh or Hegra in Al-Ula is a museum. Nouvel said, every valley and cliff, stretch of sand and rocky silhouette, deserves attention.
However, he added that the site needs a touch of modernity and renovation in certain parts.
"Innovation by architect Jean Nouvel, underscores our commitment to develop Al-Ula as a world tourist destination without compromising the history, heritage and landscape of Al-Ula," said Amr AlMadani, President and CEO of RCU.
He also mentioned that opening the monument to the public was a cultural breakthrough. Not only that, Amr added that there are projects that aim to transform a timeless architectural landscape into a new resort complex which will be completed by 2025.
Situated on a boulder in the Madain Saleh desert, this resort is close to the tomb of Qasr al-Farid (The Lonely Castle). Here there will be 40 suites, three villas, 4 private pavilions and a recreation center.
The resort will mark Saudi Arabia's tourism ambitions. Because in 2035, the kingdom is expecting two million visitors a year.
The transformation of the site to accommodate tourists is based on the principles of a government planning framework and a Commission Charter that balances innovation with heritage.
The project in Madain Saleh is part of the diversification of the Saudi Arabian economy , community empowerment and a heritage conservation program under the vision until 2030.
