Riyadh - HIM2

Al Diriyyah ... the valley oasis where bedouin nomads originally settled creating the seeds of what was to become the city of Riyadh ... relative to the extremely harsh arid desert surrounding it ... it was lush, verdant, a source of comfort and most of all, supported their survival.

The Diriyyah wall shown is approximately 200 years old.
