Old house in Abha Saudi Arabia

This old house will be converted in a museum.

The city of Abha lies in the southwestern part of the Arabian peninsula. The region abounds in mountains, valleys and fertile plains. It has a generally moderate climate, heavy rainfall, green pasture and agricultural plateaus.

Abha is engulfed by clouds and is surrounded by dense forests.

To ancient Egyptians, this region was known as the land of spices and incense.
