  • Dhahran Jagheb has redesigned its over 250 year old, traditional family home to a small oasis of tranquility. In addition to traditional crafts, there is to see there also exhibitions by local artists. Dhahran Jagheb itself has received us with a warm hospitality. He would like to gradually develop his project: a literary coffee, an oasis of peace on its own currently broke this plot etc. An initiative which applies to support it!

  • Great cultural house with a very nice owner.
  • Extremely friendly owner. A very beautiful place. Lots of history and souvenirs.
  • The owner of the place gives you a great tour in three old houses merged together to showcase the history and struggle of the people who used to live there. It dossent forget the modern culture and the times in between.
