The Al-Khalil Museum is home to this amazing clay replica of the walled city of Old Jeddah. It was constructed on the sidewalk outside the museum and features many old style buildings, including mosques, shops, schools and homes. The intricate detailing reveals windows, doorways, minarets, and even cannons and steps. The entire work is about two car lengths long and about one car length wide. Below is another photo which gives a better idea of the full size of the mini-village. (Click on images to enlarge)
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
