    Writer's Review

    Join a tour party and marvel at the sights and culture displayed with fellow tourists and non-indigenes. Islam is the practiced religion so there will be other Muslims on the palace grounds.

    Most common visitors

    The splendor of the palace and its inhabitants is so enviable, you can see from the far end of a long reception hall the Emir sitting on a red velvet couch, his courtiers appearing in white-cotton embroidered caps and knee-length white-cotton tunics to seek audience.
