How Saudi Arabia plans to rebuild area coined ‘Gates of Hell’ into a thriving province
It was just a couple of months ago that archeologists revealed their findings of ancient stone gates in a deserted area of Saudi Arabia. The region, which has been nicknamed the "Gates of Hell" due to its proximity to lava domes and volcanic fields, is thought to have been home to settlers nearly 10,000 years ago. Today, the area is mostly a wasteland with very little in the way of vegetation or, even more importantly, water. Now, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has declared his plans to give the area an extreme makeover.
The prince reportedly visited the area by buggy before stopping by the nearby province of Madinah to mingle with the locals and talk about his vision for new development in the region. Photos on social media even show a dust and sand-covered Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman being greeted by ordinary citizens that are sharing in the excitement of this important project.
