There is a system of Qanats around Layla lakes (300km S of Al Kharj)
I foolishley carried dive gear all the way  to the lakes in ~1992. Foolishly because I then felt obliged to dive the very uninspiring muddy holes by the icy first light of dawn. They entirely lived up to initial impressions!
Kind regards 
Thanks for the info on these qanats! Could you give us any more information on them?  For example, how far are the qanats below the surface? Any idea how long some of them may be? Usually qanat entrance holes are evenly about these: how far apart are the holes?
Hoping to hear more from you
