ThePlace: Saudi Arabia’s Zabal Castle

Built on the ruins of a Nabataean castle on a 50-meter rocky outcrop in the city of Sakaka in northwest Saudi Arabia, Zabal Castle consists of a reservoir and four towers that are connected by a single wall. 

The castle is believed to have been built 300 years ago, and is open to anyone fascinated by the rich Arab history this region has to offer.

RIYADH: The Ministry of Education’s school transport service provider asked families to register their children for the upcoming academic year via their website’s Noor system.

They can also email [email protected] or get in touch on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
