Civilization

Dar al-Hajar, the Rock Palace 

Perched atop a rock pinnacle at the famous Wadi Dhahr Valley, some 15 km away from the capital city of Sana, Yemen, is Dar al-Hajar, better known as the Imam’s Rock Palace. It is an iconic symbol of Yemen, whose picture you can find on postcards and magazines to bills and water bottles.

What makes the building so attractive is perhaps because it is exemplary of Yemeni architecture. It seems to grow out of the rocks on which it is constructed, and it has the characteristic painting of its windows and edges. Furthermore, it stands all alone in an oasis of green and quiet, which is the wadi.

Back in the day, Yemen didn’t have a king or a president. Instead, the leadership of the country rested on the shoulders of an Imam (Islamic spiritual leader). Yahya Muhammad Hamiddin (1869-1948) became Imam of the Zaydis (an Islamic religious sect) after his father’s death in 1904, then Imam of Yemen in 1918 and remained in that post until his assassination in 1948. The palace was built in the 1930s by Imam Yahya as his summer residence. The palace was restored for visitors, but and turned into a museum of a sort.

Bab Al-Yemen is a historical and tourist landmark that is more than a thousand years old. The main entrance to the old city of Sana’a is the southern side, and the only remaining one of the four other sections is known as the entrance to the city. Namely, Bab Khuzaymah and Bab Lashkarif. [1] This section is one of the oldest doors in Yemen.

Building of Bab Al-Yemen The historic moorings indicate that the old wall of Sana’a with its four gates, most notably the door of Yemen, was found during the reign of the state of Isfariyah (439-532). Other sources indicate that it was built during the reign of the Sulayhid state in the fifth and sixth centuries AH, After their control of Yemen in 569 AH.

Bab-al-Yemen or Yemen Gate

Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, is the oldest inhabited place in the world, and according to popular legends, the city was founded by Shem, the son of Noah. Sana’a is home to the ancient Ghumdan Palace, a 20 storey building, sometimes acknowledged as the world’s first skyscraper. Today, only a few ruins remain of the Palace. It is believed that the Great Mosque of Sana’a was mostly built from the materials of the Ghumdan Palace in the seventh century. The Great Mosque is one of the oldest mosques beside Mecca and Al-Madina in Saudi Arabia. Among the city’s other notable features are 103 mosques, around a dozen bathhouses or hammams, and more than six thousand houses all built before the 11th century.
