The Famous Cave of Judas Escariot
A long drive from my place to one of the known tourist destinations here in the Kingdom known as Jebel Al Qharra or also known as Judas Cave in Al Ahsa. The capital city of Al Ahsa is Al Hofuf which is showed in the map below.
It took us about three hours trip just to get to this location. We passed by wide desert and little vegetation.
But it was definitely rewarding once we arrived at the Famous Cave of Judas Escariot. We were also somehow intrigued how this attraction got its name. But according to legend, this is the place where Judas Escariot, one of Jesus’ 12 disciples, hid after he forsaken Jesus Christ and betrayed Him and eventually committed suicide right at this place. We were in doubt if it is true since it is was not mentioned at all. Yet, we didn’t care about it since it was considered famous that is why we came and experienced how it looks like. The view was amazing but it was just plainly a view. The place also kinda stink since other visitors or I don’t know who is doing it somehow peed in the place and smelled urine. They did not maintain the cleanliness of the place which makes it a downturn.
Since we were not satisfied with our trip in Al Ahsa, we have thought of other ways to enjoy and drove a little further for a place where quad bikes or ATVs were present just to compensate for the long trip going there.
