"Simply beautiful" Jiblah by TheLongTone

Jiblah Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 23 photos

Jiblah is a bit of a curiosity. Founded in 1066, it became inportant when Queen Arwa made the town the capital of Yemen in 1088. After her death the seat of power moved elsewhere. As a result, the town largely has the shape it must have had nine hundred years ago: it has not been engulfed by more modern developement.
