7001-سد السملقي في الطائف Samallaqi dam
Saudi Arabia

يقع هذا السد بأعلى وادي ليه من ضواحي مدينة الطائف على مسافة 35كم جنوبي المدينة , وهو سد اثري قديم من المرجح أن يكون قد تم بناؤه في الفترة السابقة لظهور الإسلام  وعلى بعض صخوره كتابات كوفيه مبكرة ولا تزال معظم جوانبه قائمه ويتميز السد بضخامته حيث يبلغ طوله حوالي 200 متر وعرضه 10 أمتار وهو يدل على فن العمارة والتشييد لدى القبائل العربية قديما 

Al Samallaqi Dam: This dam is situated in the  outskirts of Taif about 35km south of the city. It was built on the upper part of Wadi Liyyah. It is an old dam. Which might have been built  even before the Islamic period. Early Arabic Kufic inscriptions are engraved on the rocks of the dam. Most of the dam is still very well preserved. It is 200 m long and 10m wide and represents a typical architectural and constructions skill of the old Arabian tribes.

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
