Al Kharj

Facts
Al Kharj is a town and governorate located 80 km south of Riyadh AL- Kharj is defined largely by the wide valley known as Wadi al-Sahba where the floods of many other wadis such as Wadi  Hanifa are deposited. And several fresh water springs (called asyah or uyun) that  flowed towards the surface through apertures in the earth. As a result the Kharj  district has historically been one of the  richest locations in Arabia in water resources, and has supported grain production since ancient times. However, springs of Al-Kharj, like those of neighbouring al-Aflaj have completely dried up in the last two decades. Al Kharj is the source of the agricultural production, producing more than 25% of the production of vegetables in the Kingdom. It is home to the largest companies, farms, dairy plants and poultry. Al Kharj oasis produces dates, vegetables and fruits. There is also livestock and poultry, as well as horse breeding. There are also large industries for processed food. The Governorate’s population is 376.325  (2010 estimate).
