I’m not sure if this is an actual palace or not, but it certainly appears to be one. I’ve never seen such a huge awning built over an outdoor space for a residence before. Most private villas here have some outdoor space, but nowhere near as big as this one. It could be a very large family compound because it looks like there are at least three different homes built inside the space. Many wealthy families here buy a large plot of land and build homes for each of the children and their families within the compound. I’m imagining a beautiful swimming pool behind the gate, and a lovely garden, and maybe even a tennis court. If anyone knows what exactly this is or has been there before, please feel free to speak up. I’m only guessing.
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.
