Mada'in Saleh (Arab: �دائ� صا�ح, Mad�ʼin Ṣ�liḥ adalah kota kuno yang terletak di wilayah utara Hejaz (saat ini Arab Saudi), sekitar 25 km dari utara kota Al-'Ula (bahasa Arab: ا�ع�ا ). Pada zaman dahulu kota ini dihuni oleh kaum Tsamud dan Nabatea sekitar 3000 tahun SM, yang hidup di antara zaman Nuh hingga zaman Musa.

Kemudian Mada'in Saleh pada saat itu dikenal sebagai Al-Hijr (bukit berpasir). Nama Al Hijr digunakan hingga abad ke 14 Masehi.[1]

Pada tahun 2008, UNESCO memasukkan Median Shaleh ke dalam daftar Situs Warisan Dunia, dan merupakan Situs Warisan Dunia pertama di Arab Saudi. (wiki)

Quote:The older history of the oasis has been divided into several phases. The Dedanite kingdom spans to the seventh and sixth century BC. Dedan is mentioned in the "Harran Inscriptions". In these it is told how Nabonidus the king of Babylonia made a military campaign to northern Arabia in 552 BC or somewhat later, conquering Tayma, Dedan and Yathrib, the old Medina.[1] It is thought that around the turn to the fifth century BC the kingdom became hereditary.

The next four hundred years, until around 100 BC, were the time of the Kingdom of Lihyan. The Nabataeans were the lords of the region at least until 106 AD when the Romans conquered their capital Petra. The Nabataeans made Hegra, the modern Mada'in Saleh, their second capital. The power center of the region thus shifted to Hegra some 22 km to the north of Al-`Ula.

Muhammad passed through Al-`Ula in 630 on his campaign to Tabuk. Al-Mabiyat some 20 km away near Mughaira became the next commercial center of the region. It thrived from around 650 until it declined at some time before 1230.

In the 13th century the old city of Al-`Ula was built and many stones of the old Dedanite and Lihyanite ruins were reused. Al-`Ula now became the major settlement of the region again until modern times. A railway station was built for the Hejaz railway in 1901-08. The railway line was built through the western part of Al-Khuraiba some twelve kilometers to the north of the old medieval town which is believed to be the site of the old Dedanite and Lihyanite town. In the 20th century the new town center was established beside the old town and eventually the people left the old buildings. The last family is said to have left in 1983, while the last service in the old mosque was held in 1985.[2] Both the ruins of the medieval town and the site of the Liyhanite settlement now lay within the limits of the modern town.

The first European traveler of modern times to describe the town was Charles Doughty in 1876. Charles Huber was in Al-`Ula in 1881�82. He returned in 1883 accompanied by Julius Euting. French explorers A. Jaussen and R .Savignac visited the region in 1909 and again in 1910 copying inscriptions and exploring the ruins. In 1968 a team of archaeologists from the University of London investigated some fifteen inscriptions. wikipedia.com
