Overview:
This map is a 1:10 recreation of a place in Saudi Arabia. Located within the Hejaz mountains, Jebel-Jar towers over the shifting sands of the desert crag. While the shape owes itself to real-world terrin data, I have personally gone in and refined that data through to create some of the most realistic and impressive custom terrain in Minecraft.

History:
"On the fifth day after leaving Tabuk, they reach the well of al-Hijr - the Hijr of Thamud - which has an abundance of water, but not one of the pilgrims draws of it, however violent their thirst, following the example set by the Apostle of God (God bless and give him peace), when he passed it by on the expedition to Tabuk. For he drove on his riding camel, giving orders that none should water from it, and those who had used it to make dough fed their camels with it. At this place are the dwellings of Thamud, in some hills of red rock. They are hewn out and have carved thresholds, such that anyone seeing them would take them to be of recent construction. Their bones lie crumbling inside these houses - 'verily, in that is a warning example'. The Place of kneeling of the she-camel of Salih (on him be peace) is between two hills there, and in the space between them are the traces of a mosque in which pilgrims perform a prayer."
- The Rihla, Ibn Battutah (translated by Tim Mackintosh-Smith)

Omg. Its amazing, The one thing I find depressing is the thing that can't be changed by builds, The textures when you get close up (Screenshot) kinda spoil it if you know what I mean, but this is the problem with most giant builds.
