Al Bint Dam

This rare architectural masterpiece is found in Harrat Khaybar— Al Soudah – in the village of Al Thamad. Thousands of years have borne witness to the greatness of this ancient dam, which was built on the crossroads of two great valleys brought together by this giant. The dam is approximately 170m long and 40m high. Stairs and two large pedestrian walkways featuring extraordinary architectural styles extend through the dam, which was made from massive rocks. Some say that its design and magnitude are influenced by the Pharaonic Era. However, experts have not yet come to a consensus as to the period during which the dam was built, but it is probable that it dates back to pre-Islamic times.
