The Historical Palace of the Emirate

The palace was built in 1944 by the then Governor of Najran, Prince Turki bin Madhi, and it took approximately two years to complete. It covers a total area of 6252 square meters and consists of three floors with about 60 rooms. The palace was primarily built to serve as the headquarters for the Emirate of Najran and government offices at the time. The palace is characterized by its four circular towers that rise above the high walls at the corners, which were previously used to protect it through surveillance and guarding, and were called “Qasabat”. It also has a building for telecommunications and postal services.
