Bible scholars have claimed there is evidence that suggests the peak Jabal al-Lawz in the Middle Eastern kingdom is actually Mount Sinai.
The site is a 8,460 foot peak known as the “mountain of almonds”, located in north east Saudi Arabia near the border with Jordan.
Moses leads the Israelites to the mountain which is enveloped by fire, smoke and thunder, according to the Book of Exodus in the Bible.
The prophet then ascends Mount Sinai where he convenes with God to receive the Ten Commandments.
Experts from the Doubting Thomas Research Foundation have backed the location of Sinai, and also pointed out the fact it lies right in the footprint of proposed Saudi mega city Neom.
However, the researchers and explorers fear its location could never be found if the Neom project bulldozes the area.
The Sinai In Arabia project has been set up in bid to rally the Saudi authorities to preserve the sites for further investigation.
