One of the Arabian peninsula’s most spectacular archeological sites, the beehive tombs at Al Ayn has stood on a hilltop since the bronze age.

Around 24 km from the city of Ibri in A’Dhahirah governorate, it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988.

The site gives us a glimpse of Oman in the 3rd millennium BCE.

The tombs are approximately 4,000-5,000 years old and are remnants of an ancient civilisation.

At sunset, the well-preserved tombs against the backdrop of Jebel Misht make a stunning sight to behold.
