Al Naslaa Rock

Mysterious Sandstone

Shrouded with mystery in the Tayma region of Saudia Arabia, is an incredible huge megalith rock which is split precisely down the middle, as if sliced with a laser.

Al Naslaa rock is one of the most photogenic petroglyphs in Saudi Arabia. The megalith rock situated in Tayma desert, is rich in archaeological and biblical history. Today, many tourists flock to this mysterious rock to see it with their own eyes.

Despite its huge size, the incredible sandstone block is connected to what looks like an eroded natural pedestal. The rock is perfectly split between two standing stones, and the flat faces are completely natural. The rock art engraved onto it resemble a horse or camel.

Since its discovery in 1883, by Charles Huver, the Al-Naslaa megalith stone has been at the heart of conspiracy theories and controversy. There are many speculations but, none have discovered the true origin of the stone. How was it possible to split a megalith in such a sharp, precise way, other than the use of technology? One theory is that the perfect halving was caused by the movement of earth beneath the rocks over the centuries. As the cut is too neat and clean, can the work of nature be so precise?

Was there an entire civilization centuries or millennia ago that actually have technologies more advanced than what we have now, but have been completely and absolutely erased by the sands of time? Today, the true origin of Al Naslaa Rock remains an unsolved mystery.
