It bears the name of one of the most ancient and most popular markets in the history of the Arabian Peninsula.
Taif is characterized by many famous sites such as Shubra Palace which is home to the Taif Regional Museum, which was the residence of King Abdul Aziz and used by King Faisal as the Presidency of the Council of Ministers during summer; it recently became one of the most important museums in the Kingdom.
