Bin Hamsan

Bin Hamsan

Asir province

This is Bin Hamsan, owner of the traditional house outside of Khamis Mushayt. It is a delightful example of traditional housing with painted doors and windows, giant wooden exterior doors opening on to a large courtyard complete with fire and traditional tent. Everyone has been to see him including HRH Prince Charles and Barbara Walters and now me ...what more can one say?
