Dar al-Hajar, Sanaa

5.0
Climb to the top of an enormous rock to visit Dar al-Hajar, an ancient Yemeni royal palace. Admire the traditional architecture, with five floors made of carved stone more than 700 years ago, and pay attention to the towers made of burnt brick, featuring white gypsum ornaments. Take a walk around the summer palace, and enjoy the view of the natural landscape that surrounds you. Dar al-Hajar is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Sanaa Edition.

    Not far from Sana'a. Waiting 15 km, you will find there, in the fertile valley of the green back. The tall rock and fantastic, standing stone, the Mansion House/seven floors in architectural composition is incompatible with the nature and form of granitic rock which stands upon the Palace, up it goes. Is one of the places that I recognize. Adopted by the Kings of ancient Yemen by tourist in shrubs and lobbies of the mansion a broad corridor paved with stones have longstanding, gives you a sense of place and preparedness uniqueness. Different stories about the history of its construction, but everyone agrees the elegance of the Palace and exceptional location on the high rock. From the Windows of his break and "released" overlooking the walfrsk grapes, quince and giant trees. If you visit all the highlights history and tourism in the world and never visited stone house, you will not complete your pleasure. Stone House landmark rework our partnership agreement so. You may not be able to visit him in the meantime, Yemen's conditions, and all you have to do, is to put it in mind, as a tourist destination. Button stone house to confirm that one visit is not enough to hope all these towering extravaganza.

Where to stay in Sanaa

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.
