Al Imara Palace

Al Imara Palace

Abha

Former seat of the Government of Asir province designed in the typical style. Unlike those of the drier area of Najran, here the walls are adobe but require horizontal bands of thinly cut stone like a roof slate to prevent the rain from seeping into the walls. Asir province is the wettest part of Saudi Arabia.
