Ramataj Rock

Overview

Standing some 1,600 feet high and having a circumference of almost eight miles, this massive red sandstone formation can be seen from a distance of more than 65 miles away. Casting long shadows on the red sands of the Khydoban Desert, Ramataj Rock dominates the surrounding landscape.

There are numerous caves that pockmark the surface of this monolith. Many of the caves are located near or at the base of the rock. The walls of these caves are decorated with pictographs and wall paintings of the Dejy nomads who inhabit the desert plains. Having used the caves of Ramataj Rock as shelters from the heat of the sun and desert storms for ages, the murals tell the history and beliefs of the desert nomads.
