Rijal Al-Ma'a - The chief Urban town

Re-visited this amazing town in Feb 2011. All new images are in begining of gallery.

The ancient Rujal: Rujal is in Rijal Alma'a governerate, specifically in the middle. The mountain called Raz or Roz (as the people say in the place) seperates it from North Alma'a and South Alma'a (Alma'a AlYemen). Rujal is surrounded by Mountains from all directions. (Ref: Rujal the Chief Urban Town, Author: Ali Ibrahim Moghawi).

Very nice tourist point, with tourist information centre, from where you can buy books, CDs and collect information about the place. We bought book about history of these people and above information is from the book (available in Eng & Arabic).
