because people speak English
Sana'a is the capital of my homeland, Yemen. It is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. I found an article about “Old Sana’a“. I was attracted by the most wonderful pictures of that great town. Therefore, I decided to re-publish the article in my blog since the original article had been written in Arabic. Now, I'd like to share it with you. =)
Old Sana’a♥ is one of the oldest cities in the world. It is also registered as one of the 25th most important historical landmark in the world by UNESCO. It features traditional architecture and beautiful buildings. Some of its buildings were built more than 500 years ago. They are still inhabited by people until today.
Old Sana’a♥ is famous in multi- floors houses which may amount to seven floors. That depends on the economic situation and social status of the house’s owner.
In the past, the first floor of the house was usually as a storage for keeping their food and other things which was needed in the standard of living. Whereas the other floors was used for housing according to a particular system.
There are orchards among the old houses which are called “Maqashim“
Decoration of outer walls of the houses is made by Lime
Hope to enjoy reading and watching about one of the great city of my homeland. =)
