Shibam was founded in the 16th century. And has been given the nickname "Manhattan of the desert". The oldest towers in the city is 400+ yeras old, and the highest towers are on 16 floors.
All the towers are made of mud and palme-leaves.

Every family or tribe has their own tower.

Yes. I belive there is a law that says that you are not allowed to built outside the city wall.

Awesome place. I saw it in the National Geographic and was just blown away by the height of the mud tower. It's an incredible oasis - a piece of manhatten where you'd least expect to find it. 8/10 for it's age.
