Looking into the past
Jassasiya rock carvings, located in the northeast of Qatar, 50 miles from Doha, are easy to access on a 4x4. This archaeological site comprises a total of 874 petroglyphs dating back to the 15th century. Although Qatar has other rock carving sites, Al-Jassasiya is considered the most extraordinary in terms of both their quality and their state of preservation. The carvings vary from geometric patterns to representations of animals, boats, and games.
The site is always open and there is no admission fee.
