On the outskirts of Jeddah I have seen several structures similar to this one. They are pigeon roosts and built on private property to attract pigeons. They lay their eggs in these roosts and then the property owner can go inside and collect the eggs without disturbing the pigeons. From what I’ve read about pigeons, these roosts might possibly be built to steer them away from other structures or statues where they could cause damage. So I’m just guessing here, but they might be built as a distraction or a protective measure for the artwork all around Jeddah.
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. 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 OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
