ThePlace: Ashikar Heritage Village in Riyadh


The most popular port of call for visitors to Riyadh is the historic Ashikar Heritage Village.
Characterized by its old mud buildings the site, 200 km northwest of the Saudi capital, has become a major attraction for tourists and locals alike.
Residents of Ashikar initiated the restoration of the town, and with the support of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), it has been turned into one of the Kingdom’s most treasured architectural gems.
Tourists can also visit museums and restaurants serving traditional foods, located around the heritage center site.
