About the place:

Dhar al Hajjar, the rock palace, is one of the most reknowned monument of Yemen. Built in 1920 and perched at 50 m on the rock, it is located 20 kms away from Sana'a, in a fertile valley planted with qat and fruits, at a rough altitude of 2500 m.

It has been the summer residence of the imam Yahya (who became king of Yemen in 1926) until his assassination in 1948. The view on the Wadi Dhar is excellent, and the freshness inside is as remarkable as the architecture of the monument from outside.





Les lieux:

Dhar Al Hajjar, le palais du rocher, est situé à une vingtaine de kilomètres de Sana'a, dans une vallée fertile plantée de qat et de fruits, à une altitude de 2500 m environ.

Construit en 1920 et perché à 50 m de hauteur, a été la résidence d'été de l'imam Yahya (qui est devenu roi du Yémen en 1926) jusqu'à son assassinat en 1948. La vue sur le Wadi Dhar est excellente, et la fraîcheur intérieure est aussi remarquable que l'architecture du monument de l'extérieur.
