Is it really Anti Gravity spot?
If this were an anti gravity place, people would have started to fly and the object would have started to move in the air. But in actual this doesn’t happen. So the gravity exists. Then how the car starts moving uphill without acceleration (in neutral gear)?
Answer to this question is that Salalah Anti gravity point is in fact not anti-gravity point, but is a Gravity Hill. As per Wikipedia, the definition of Gravity Hill is “A gravity hill, also known as a magnetic hill, mystery hill, mystery spot or gravity road, is a place where the layout of the surrounding land produces an optical illusion, making a slight downhill slope appear to be an uphill slope.“
