AlUla, The Place of heritage for the world
Located in a desert oasis, 1,100 km from Riyadh and 200 miles to the north of Madinah, AlUla is a place of extraordinary natural and human heritage. A cradle of human history, rock art and carved inscriptions reveal the presence of great civilisations past including the Dadanites, Lihyanites and Nabataeans, each of whom chose this unique region to build their kingdoms.
Royal Commission for AlUla
The Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) was established by royal decree in July 2017 to protect, safeguard and reinvigorate this region of extraordinary natural, historical and cultural significance.
A Shared Heritage
Transmission is a fundamental principle not only of any civilisation but also of humanity as a whole. It is transmission that allows us to bridge the past and the present in order to build a future that honours our ancestors while caring for our children. Understanding and appreciating our history and culture while sharing it with new generations is crucial to improving the state of humanity in these uncertain times.
