Photographer's Note

Ruins of a 100-years old village situated between Makkah & Riyadh (~350km from Jeddah). Built by Otaiba tribe, where they moved along time ago to a new modernized town 30km from this location. The village consist of ~20 houses, mosque & an Ottman fort. This image goes to the Mosque, showing a side from its external wall.

The whole location is almost abandoned, with no attention from the authorities to ensure preserving such a history...
