Duqm Triliths

Triliths is a 2,000-year-old stone formations formed along the valleys alongside the southern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, from Hadramout in Yemen to Ras Al Hadd in northern Oman. The European travelers Bertram Thomas and Wilfred Thesiger described the Triliths as a remarkable phenomenon.

They realised that triliths is not a stand-alone but rather a composition called "monument". Thus, the Special Economic Zone at Duqm (SEZD), in cooperation with the Ministry of Heritage and Culture, is working on a project to excavate the triliths in Duqm and transfer it to the National Museum.
