What is this place?

Incredible isn't it? To carve out a geometrically accurate facade of a 3-4 story building with crowned, cornice moldings out of the mountain rock is unreal. So many treasures like that in KSA.

Yes but, what's the name of it? It's like some other places in the world, like Petra in Jordan.
 
What is this place?

A tiny part of the Mada'in Saleh World UNESCO Heritage site in Hijaz, as brother @Gomig-21 rightly mentioned. Parts of which were built over 3000 years ago.

Yes but, what's the name of it? It's like some other places in the world, like Petra in Jordan.

That is because those ancient heritage sites of which a significant portion are World UNESCO Heritage Sites today were built by the same people; Nabateans one of the many ancient Semitic peoples whose original homeland was Hijaz.

Nabatean World UNESCO Heritage Sites can be found in KSA, Jordan (Petra as you mentioned - voted as the 8th wonder of the world by millions of people across the world not many years ago)

Syria (Bosra) and Israel/Palestine (Avdat, Shivta, Mamshit, Haluza) and Egypt (Dahab, Sinai).

The Nabataeans, also Nabateans (/ˌnæbəˈtiːənz/; Arabic: الأنباط‎ al-ʾAnbāṭ , compare Ancient Greek: Ναβαταῖος, Latin: Nabataeus), were an Arab[1] people who inhabited northern Arabia and the Southern Levant. Their settlements, most prominently the assumed capital city of Raqmu, now called Petra,[1] gave the name of Nabatene to the borderland between Arabia and Syria, from the Euphrates to the Red Sea. Their loosely controlled trading network, which centered on strings of oases that they controlled, where agriculture was intensively practiced in limited areas, and on the routes that linked them, had no securely defined boundaries in the surrounding desert. Trajan conquered the Nabataean kingdom, annexing it to the Roman Empire, where their individual culture, easily identified by their characteristic finely potted painted ceramics, was adopted into the larger Greco-Roman culture. They were later converted to Christianity. Jane Taylor, a writer, describes them as "one of the most gifted peoples of the ancient world".[2]

Beautiful pics, Sharif.


Look at that beautiful Peregrine falcon. The most famous of all falcons and fastest animal in the world.
I've caught and banded many of these up this way in the North East US during migration season, have also flown several of them with my falconer buddies and it's one of the most exciting birds to watch hunt, along with the prairie falcon and of course, the gyrfalcon. I've done a few of those and plan others in the coming year.
