Naseef House is one of the old buildings located in Old Jeddah. It is over 100 years old and today is a museum and the place where walking tours of the historical area called Al-Balad (Arabic for the city or the town) begin and end. The building is several stories high, and the views from its rooftop are incredible. At prayer time, one can also hear the calls to prayer from dozens of nearby mosques and it’s quite an overwhelming and spiritual experience. For more information and photos of the Al-Balad area, please see this post I wrote several months ago after a lovely tour I took there.
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.
