  • Its too far from Riyadh( 3hrs driving one way) however it worth it. Its very close to Bahrain so I siggest you to visit it during your time in Bahrain. Amazing place and caves, consider 2-3 hrs of vis...  more »
  • This site is an ancient natural cave that has been over-engineered into a tourist site in a country that hasn’t yet got many tourist sites. If you live in Riyadh and are either interested in history o...  more »

  • Serene is the best word to describe this place. The walk through the caves itself is a beautiful experience. I am so impressed how they have lit up the caves with maintaining the security of the visitors by putting up the CCTV cameras around. There are professional photographers inside the cave and I must say you must try to get one. If you are in AlHasa I would definitely recommend you to visit this place.
  • Had a truly amazing and out of this world type of experience... Easily accessible and well maintained.. Entry fee is acceptable and nothing in front of what you'll feel inside this magnificent place. Highly recommend it for locals and ancient place lovers
  • As a modern day explorer who loves ancient and prehistoric places in KSA, Al Qarah seems not too excellent anymore esp it has been developed for commercial tourism. Gone are the days where the place is more natural and less developed. Now, there's a big restaurant, event spaces and some souvenir shops at the main entrance area. To add to the unnatural visuals are modern sculptures or carvings that tells about the early civilizations hence the new name of the place: Land of Civilizations. The caves inside have special ambient lightings that are too colorful and a video documentary is projected on the cave wall.
  • A serene place. Loved how they havr enhanced the caves with lighting effects, really brings out the beauty of these caves. Highly recommended for summers as they are very cool.
  • Also called Land of Civilization. Luckily we were pretty much the only visitors on Saturday at noon. They open from 8am-6pm (not like what Google says) Very professional and well built and taken care of. There are professional photographers inside to take nice photos for you (15-25 SR per photo worth it). The weather outside was hot (30 degrees) while inside the weather was cooler filled with a soft cooling breeze. It is also warm during cold winters. There is a mosque just outside for people to pray whether before or after visiting. Highly recommend visiting it
