Enjoy a guided tour of the historic sites of Dadan & Jabal Ikmah during your stay in Al Ula!

You'll meet your guide in Dadan, also known as Lihyan, for your first visit. Governed by a succession of kings based in the Al Ula valley, Dadan quickly became one of the region's major cities. The archaeological site includes a necropolis carved out of the mountain, whose two famous Lion Tombs, as well as the foundations of the kingdom's capital, bear witness to the city's wealth. 

You'll then continue your tour with a visit to Jabal Ikmah, a mountain to the north of the Al Ula valley. At the entrance to the canyon that leads up the mountain, you'll see thousands of pieces of graffiti and inscriptions carved into the soft rock by travellers passing through Dadan. The inscriptions are written in all the languages that were used during ancient times: Aramaic, Dadanitic, Safaitic, Thamudic, Minaic and Nabataean.
