Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum (Arabic: وادي رم‎) is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southwest Jordan. Wadi Rum may be best known for its connection with T. E. Lawrence, who based his operations here during 1917–18. One of the impressive rock formations in Wadi Rum was named "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom" in memory of Lawrence's book, though the 'Seven Pillars' referred to in the book actually have no connection with Rum.
