Al Mibniah is a city located in the north of Yemen just next the boarder with Saudi Arabia. The old fortifed city was built around 600 AD and became and important muslim holy city during the Middle Ages. The Ottoman Empire conquered the city in 1516. After the WWI and the fall of Ottoman Empire, Al Mibniah became part of North Yemen and was affected by civil war of the sixties. Crude Oil was discovered in 1995 around the city, making it richer and richer.
This city is inspired by Medina and Sanaa. After the loss of Yadmuz, I decided to build another Arabic city, i hope better than the previous one.
Here, we can see the Old Mosque, the Main square and the old town hall turned into a museum.
Central main square, the oldest part of the city.
This building is classified World Heritage by UNESCO.
Bazaar of Al Mibniah.
A part of the city has been destroyed to build this big square in front of the Holy Mosque. Thousands of pilgrims come here to pray every year.
The oasis half dried up by the use of water and turn into a park. In the center : A medieval barrack.
on the other side of the border, in Saudi Arabia.
The city is not finished yet, I hope you enjoyed the visit of Al Mibniah.
It's not long before we will be moving. The new hosting has been setup and the next thing to be done is to change the DNS. When it's changed it may take between 24 to 48 hours to take effect. During this time XLN will be closed so it can be backed up. When the new DNS takes effect, you will see a basic page with a message regarding the move.
