Jar Rock

●   # Rank

With AlUla, Saudi Arabia's first UNESCO World Heritage site, you receive centuries' worth of tales, works of art, and unmatched beauty in the natural world.

AlUla is a treasure trove of natural rock masterpieces that dot its exemplary sandy environment, sculpted during millions of years of erosion and chiseled by wind and water.

One of AlUla's distinctive sandstone outcrops has an opening due to millions of years of erosion. Although some people think it looks like a bottle or a bowling pin, the result is a jar that nature has fashioned. When you visit 'Jabal Jarrah,' determine the location of the jar rocks for yourself.

The mountain's jar-shaped entrance, which lies just across from Elephant Rock, is the ideal location for breathtaking views of the valley below.
