Roads of Arabia-the Archaeological Treasures of Saudi Arabia is the first large scale survey of the history and culture of Arabian peninsula in Korea. Tracing ancient incense trade routes and early-Islamic pilgrimage roads that once spanned the peninsula, 466 objects ranging from human-shaped steles dating back the 4th Millennium BC to gilded doors that once graced the entrance to the Ka’ba at Mecca will be displayed. Roads of Arabia, organized by the National Museum of Korea and the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, will be the great opportunity to open our eyes to the largely unknown ancient past of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
