Deera Square

Located close to the Masmak Fort, Deera Square is a public area adjoining the headquarters of ‘mutawwa’, Saudi Arabia’s religious police. It is also known as the Justice Square or Chop-Chop Square, because this is where public executions by beheading and stoning take place. It is said that such events are actually rare, because often times the family of the victim pardons the criminal for financial recompense.

Also known as Justice Square or Chop Chop Square, Deera Square is a modern public square where executions (usually by beheading) still take place as capital punishment.

While the might not be the best place to be at during execution, it is a nice square to visit where you’ll see kids running and playing with the water fountains.
