According to Exodus chapters 20 and 24, Moses set up an altar “at the foot of the mountain” after writing down God’s Laws in the Book of the Covenant. The altar was for burnt sacrifices and peace offerings of sheep and cattle and must be constructed without steps, and without cut or chiseled stone. The altar was constructed at the foot of the mountain, along with 12 pillars representing the 12 tribes of Israel.

Possible Altar System
Right at the foot of the mountain, there is an undeniably man-made structure with features that fit the Biblical requirements for a sacrificial altar.
This L-shaped structure clearly resembles chutes, which would be required for lining up the animals for sacrifice. At the end of the line, there is evidence of burnt sacrifices and various features required for the Exodus story to take place.
It is an earthen altar, does not have steps, and is made entirely of uncut stones, an anomalous design among most man-made structures.
One end of the altar has a pit with layers of ash; this is likely where animal sacrifices would have taken place. The Saudi government’s researchers who briefly excavated the site, apparently with the purpose of debunking the alleged connection to Moses, had to concede that ash, animal waste, bones, and charcoal were found while digging 3-4 feet at the site.
The topography of the location is also fitting for the story. The Books of Exodus and Deuteronomy state that there was a brook (a stream) that came down from the mountain. At Jabal Maqla, it is easy to see where water came down from a higher spot on the mountain. The stream-bed comes down from the mountain right next to this altar site.
