Thee Ayn, Ancient Marble Village

The village was named after a water spring that flows continuously from the nearby mountains to several reservoirs, and each particular pond has its own name. There is a local legend that tells of a man who lost his cane in one of the valleys, and to retrieve it he tracked it until he reached the village, where he enlisted the help of the inhabitants and retrieved his cane after digging up the spring. The village dates back about 400 years, and it witnessed the battles between the Ottoman Turks and its inhabitants.

Thi Ain Heritage Village in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Al-Baha province dates back hundreds of years. It is one of the most mesmerizing and dramatic archeological sites in the Kingdom which includes old buildings, agricultural lands, springs, distinctive cultural and natural landscapes, gardens and a visitor’s center. The village is located on a hill and surrounded by banana and other trees. For those interested in history, the village is a treasure trove of information about architecture.
