Yemen Things to Do: 143 reviews and 301 photos


Tarim (near Sayun) has a spectacular white mosque and several sadly derelict palaces of a rich merchant family (Al-Kaf) from Tarim. One of them is open to the public; excellent views on Tarim from the roof. There is no money to restore them to their former glory which is sad and makes them look like remnants of a ghost town. You can still see their former beauty though. Hopefully, somebody turns them into hotels or museums to save this precious architecture.
