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.
