Background
Site DescriptionThe Qasr al-Farid (‘Lonely Castle’ in Arabic) is located in the archaeological site of Madâin Sâlih, to the northeast of Saudi Arabia’s Hijaz mountains. The standalone tomb was constructed around the 1st century AD and is one of the most famous tombs in Madâin Sâlih. It sits completely isolated from other tombs in the area; most tombs in Madâin Sâlih were found in groups, which explains why this one is considered 'lonely.'
Project DescriptionThe Qasr al-Farid tomb was carved from solid sandstone and faces harsh winds, constantly eroding the exposed façade. It’s one of countless tombs in the Madâin Sâlih, a 500 hectare region that was classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 2008.
