Arabian Architecture

dscf6046-1

This is part of Jeddah’s famous Al-Khalil Museum.  It is a fine example featuring many of the details of the old style Arabian architecture – the huge stones, the fortress style, the heavy carved wooden door, the large intricate wooden window coverings, minarets, and elaborate detailing everywhere.   I think it is stunning.

    Greetings from Bahrain!

    Your photos are very stunning and amazing! They really open my mind of how modern and vibrant Jeddah city is.

    Btw, I just found out your DP at London DP, I should thank Ham for that! I am going to add you link on my DP then. Thanks for sharing Jeddah with us and the world.
