Hello everybody,

since i am a new member, i will share you a topic about my country. ^___^

the topic i found it in a blog. i translated into English and republished it in my blog. Surely, i did that with credit ^^

Now, be ready to be attracted by my country LOL XD

by the way, Old Sana'a is a town in ♥Yemen♥
------------

while my browsing throughout sites, 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. The original article is in Arabic and it has been putting as a one part too.

Old Sana’a♥ is one of the oldest cities in the world. It are 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 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
“burnt Gypsum“

Sana'a is such a beautiful city, and seems to be unspoilt by ugly modernist architecture. It's a shame Yemen is so dangerous, I'd love to just explore that entire city.

Yes, Sana'a is so attractive country ^_^

people keep using their special design in building even if they use some modern styles

Why did you say like this about YEMEN???

it's not truth, Yemen is a peace country. Their people are so lovely and helpful ^__^

Since Yemen is such a safe place, ymnpearl will surely come outta captivity to show you some. :dunno:


Anyway, Sana'a really is mindblowing. Everything possible needs to be done to protect it.

I once stumbled upon this nice drive through Sana'a, it shows some impressive (and sometimes worrying) streetviews of the city. Check it!
