Saudi Arabia’s King Abdulaziz Camel Festival, the largest such event in the region, is being held this year from March 19 until April 15.

According to organisers, the festival has so far brought an average of more than 35,000 visitors a day to Al Sayaheed, a small village in the Rumah governorate of Riyadh province that was this year designated the event’s permanent home.

The location was for centuries a meeting point for camel caravans arriving from all points on the Arabian peninsula, carrying goods and trading animals. Now the King Abdulaziz Foundation for Research and Archives that organises the festival wants to make Al Sayaheed the camel capital of the world and part of the transformation of Saudi Arabia’s oil-dependent economy.
