Khor Rori, ruins of an ancient South Arabian town, UNESCO World Heritage Site, Oman

Inscriptions at Khor Rouri reports that the town, called 'Sumhuram', was founded on royal initiative and settled by a??adramite emigrants. Dhofar was the main source of frankincense in the ancient period, and it seems likely that the foundation of the settlement was in part motivated by a Hadramite wish to control the production of this valuable commodity.
In 2000 it was added to the Unesco world heritage list.
Today, visitors to the site can find Bronze Age fortifications from the small fortified town as well as a local palace ascribed to the Queen of Sheba
