Introducing Najran

The oasis at Najran, surrounded by mountains and close to the Yemeni border, is one of Saudi Arabia’s hidden gems. With towering mud-brick, fortress-like homes known as qasr strung out along the wadi and an exceptional mud-brick fort, Najran is like nowhere else in the Kingdom.

Throughout its long and sometimes turbulent history, Najran has been a key link between the north and west of Arabia and Yemen. Today, these connections can still be seen and felt in Najran’s people and its culture.
