Dumat al-Jundal (Arabic: دومة الجندل‎, dōmat al-jandal / dawmat al-jandal pronounced [doːmat aldʒandal]), also known as Al-Jawf or Al-Jouf (Arabic: الجوف‎), is an ancient city of ruins and the historical capital of the Al Jawf Province, North Western Saudi Arabia. It is located 37 km away from Sakakah. The name Dumat al-Jandal means literally "Dumah of the Stone", since this was the territory of Dumah, one of the twelve sons of Ishmael; the name Al-Jawf means "depression", referring to Wadi Sirhan. The city's ancient Akkadian name was Adummatu. Dumat al-Jandal has a boundary wall which is considered a historical site. Moreover, there is an oasis that has a number of ruins.
