The Seven Pillars of Wisdom is a stunningly shaped mountain opposite of the Wadi Rum visitor centre. If you look carefully, you will see that there are only six pillars. The mountain is named after the famous book of T.E. Lawrence back in the 1980s. He took the title from a verse in the Bible. In Proverbs, it says, ‘Wisdom has built her house; she has carved out her seven pillars’. Bedouin know this mountain as Jabal Al-Mazmar.
