Amarah Historic Palace- This distinctive landmark links the past with the present through its unique construction engineering and planning. It is located in the city of Aba in Najran province, on an area of approximately 625 square meters. Construction on the palace began in early 1362 (AH), during the time of King Abdul Aziz, to be the Amir’ Palace and a Sharia court. It consists of an integrated castle surrounded by a high fence guarded by four cylindrical towers. There is a tower in each corner that adds a touch of beauty to the building. A water well in the interior yard of the palace caters to the residents of the palace. The well is deemed very old, dating back to the pre-Islamic period, which is indicated by the fact that the lower part of the well is built with burnt red bricks, a practice employed in digging wells before Islam. The upper part was perhaps ruined, and then re-built. In addition, it was renovated with stone masonry during recent restoration work.
