According to the research paper, there are about 16,000 tombs on the side of that thousand year old road.

According to a researcher, the tombs are 4500 years old. In the tombs one by one or a few members of a group were buried together. Surprisingly, the tombs have been preserved for so long. Of these 18,000 tombs, 80 have been excavated. Scientists are trying to find out about them.

Experts believe that these highways must have gone to Yemen. This is because similar graves have been found in Yemen and northern Syria before.

Such a guess, so that the loved one can be seen while moving!
