Al-Kharj is located at a distance of 77 km south of Riyadh. You can read about the city on the following links:
 
 
Places to Visit:
 
 
1. Ayun AlSeih (Means Eyes of Al-Seeh) / Ayuun an Najm / Al Kharj Wells
 

This place has 2 big holes, around 500m apart and it is said that those were created by meteor shower 1000s of years back. These holes use to have water just a decade or so ago and thus these were used for irrigation. Now these are completely empty and have a fence around them for safety purposes but there are some entrances in the fence made by visitors. You can only see it during day light as there are no arrangements to see during night.
