Ancient Kingdom Meluhha on Musandam Peninsula North End of Hajar Mountains Mleiha or Melukhkha High Country


Ice age Mesopotamian kings such as Sargon of Akkad traded with Meluhha, which could have been where today is called Mleiha in the mountains of the Musandam peninsula (jutting out to the Strait of Hormuz), Mleiha also known as Melukhkha. The Dravidian language of India is thought to be rooted in Elamite (Elam a son of Shem), so that the word mel-akam in Dravidian means high country is suggestive that Meluhha was founded by progeny of Elam, nearby Jebel Shams indicative of reverence for Shem.
