The Seven Pillars of Wisdom

The Seven Pillars of Wisdom
Jordan, Wadi Rum, May 2009

The Seven Pillars of Wisdom is a large rock formation in Wadi Rum, named after the book of Thomas Edward Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). This book is an autobiographical account of his experiences as a British soldier. He was renowned especially for his liaison role during the Arab Revolt of 1916/18. Many sites inside the Wadi Rum area have been named after Lawrence to attract tourists, although there is little or no evidence connecting him to any of these places, including the famous rock formations near the entrance now known as "The Seven Pillars":[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Pillars_of_Wisdom
