The plain below the rock was a vast grassland
during the Neolithic period that began when humankind first developed agriculture and settled in permanent enclaves.
Over the escarpment that runs at a distance of
around 200 meters from these rocks, you can find tumuli (ancient burial mounds).
A little bit of additional effort to get to the
top of the escarpment could worth your visit to Graffiti Rocks.
Tumuli are common sights in Najd on rocky
platforms. A very good example of circular tumuli can be found just
around 8km away from Riyadh Checkpoint on the western part of Tuwaiq
