Queen Bilqis
These ruins used to be the palace of Queen Bilqis, the Queen of Sheba, perhaps one of those supposed to have been built by Prophet Sulaiman (Solomon) (Peace be upon him). These ruins are located on the eastern coast of Oman just west of Salalah in the Dhofar region. It is thought that these ruins are to be identified with the city of Abyssopolis mentioned by the classical Greek geographer Pliny. Arabic sources maintain the city was built by King Aziz II who ruled over the Hadramawt in the first century CE. The city is now named Sumhurum and was excavated a number of times, including by Wendell Philips and the American Foundation for the Study of Man in 1952
