In a celebration of cultural exchange and historical richness, the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) has officially announced the eagerly anticipated second edition of the "AlUla, Wonder of Arabia" exhibition. This prestigious event is scheduled to captivate audiences in Beijing from January 5 to March 24, 2024, at none other than the revered Palace Museum in the Forbidden City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of the Chinese capital.


The exhibition, a testament to the enduring ties between Saudi Arabia and China, seeks to illuminate the history and cultural heritage of the AlUla governorate. As the custodian of a wealth of archaeological treasures, AlUla stands as a living testament to the Kingdom's rich past and its commitment to preserving and sharing its cultural legacy.

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to witness rare sculptures, pottery, and engravings, offering a glimpse into the region's rich and diverse heritage.


The choice of the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City as the exhibition venue is a fitting tribute to the historical significance of AlUla. Prince Badr bin Abdullah emphasized that the exhibition signifies the strong cultural partnership and communication between the Saudi and Chinese peoples. He expressed the commitment to share AlUla's heritage with the world, inviting visitors to embark on a cultural and historical journey from the heart of the governorate to the global stage.


Building on the success of the inaugural edition held in Paris, France, in 2019, the Beijing exhibition will not only showcase archaeological treasures but also feature documentary films highlighting the intricate history and cultural significance of AlUla. Additionally, the exhibition will offer insights into the "Journey Through Time" masterplan, providing a comprehensive overview of historical sites such as Dadan, Hegra Historical City, Qurh, and AlUla Old Town.


As a testament to the commitment to cultural accessibility, the exhibition will be open to the public free of charge.
