To Noel_Byrne: Arab Cultural Capital

  • Yes, Noel. The geo elevation actually increases from the entrance, about 75 metres, and the monument itself rises from a hill at about 89 metres elevation. Distance from the entrance is 560 metres along the straight road - tarmacadam. What makes the monument impressive is, in part, the starkness of the surrounding sand dunes. Two more uploads for this to come.
