See Qurani verses carved into the stone walls of Al Saleh Mosque. The fusion of architectural styles, which they call Himyarite architecture, highlights the massiveness of the mosque while the combination of black, red, and white limestone, represents its significance. The main dome with wooden ornate roof is 39 m (about 127 ft) tall, and its minarets stand over 100 m (328 ft). Inside you'll see chandeliers with floral motifs as well as classrooms and libraries where students can study. The place is completely secure; you may even witness bomb-sniffing dogs.

With a clear divide between the old and new districts of the city of Sanaa, visitors will find a selection of accommodation options in each. Prices tend to be more reasonable in the new district, with many mid range hotels offering well serviced facilities within walking distance to the more charming old district. For a more luxurious stay on your Sanaa vacation, a handful of 4 star premium hotels are scattered both in and out of the old district, although all are fairly close to the city center.
