Arabic version

English

22-Feb-2008 -- We visited the confluence 25N 47E on Friday, 22 February 2008. This place is near Rumāḥ governorate and near the capital, al-Riyāḍ, too, and it's 6 km to the North of the Dammām-Riyāḍ highway.

This confluence is on al-`Uruma plateau which is part of al-Ṭuwayq mountains. The place has now become a farm for animals, and the Confluence is inside the farm. The land is flat there and it is called al-Ṭurāq and we visited it in the afternoon.

Arabic

قررنا المرور على الملتقى ٢٥/٤٧ يوم الجمعة ٢٢/٢/٢٠٠٨ م والموقع قريب من محافظة رماح، وقريب من العاصمة الرياض ولا يبعد عن الطريق السريع الدمام ـ الرياض سوى ٦ كم جهة الشمال. ׳

وهو يقع بأعلى جبال العرمة التي هي جزﺀ من جبال طويق. والموقع الآن أصبح مزرعة لتربية الأغنام وهو يقع داخل تلك المزرعة. والأرض المستوية التي يقع بها تسمى الطراق ووقت زيارتنا له العصر. ׳
