Apparently only one family remained living in the old town of Birkat Al Mawz. My guide managed to located their house which is located behind my guide in this photograph. Perhaps they like living here alone because they have the whole town to themselves and they can live like a king !
The old town of Birkat Al Mawz is situation on the foot of the Western Hajar Mountains which create a stunning view. The town is almost deserted now as most of the people has moved elsewhere. There is only one family living here now. The entrance to Birkat Al Mawz is not easy to find as it is located along a narrow path in between two houses, and many people would have missed it.
I feel that the best time of the day is during late afternoon where the setting sun is not so not, and the yellowish sunlight casts a beautiful yellow colour onto the ruins.
