Diarise Seeing Diriyah

Diriyah, Saudi Arabia

Diriyah, Saudi Arabia

This postcard of Diriyah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, came all the way from Ian in Saudi Arabia. Diriyah is located near the country’s capital, Riyadh. It served as the first Saudi dynasty’s seat and capital of Saudi Arabia from 1744 to 1818. The city, however, dates back much further back to somewhere between 1446 and 1447. I don’t know about many places like this that are still standing in the world, it definitely looks like something one would have to see before trading the temporary for the eternal. I’ll have to add it to my future travel plans. Thank you Ian!
