    Unfortunatley, as some other castles and strongholds in Yemen, is not allowed to visit it. It´s beacuse the army still uses it as a guardpost.

    In the old city, between Al-Ameriya mosque and the hill, is placed the suq. All along narrow and dirty streets, between walls and houses of the old city, are placed the workshops and merchants of the suq. Usually, each street have a kind of commerce. So you can visit the street of species, fuits, vegetables, or workshops like jambia workshops and other.
    Walking in the evening is a giood experience, but be aware, don´t get lost !

    It´s an important monument in the city. Builded in XV century by the last Tahirid king, it is special and rare mosque, as it hasn´t minarets. Instead of this, it has domes in its roof, and has two floors, well decorated with archs. It seems a palace instead of a mosque.
    At that moment, we couldn´t enter becaude it was being rebuilded.
