The Shoubra Palace was built in 1907, as the first historical palace in the beautiful city of Taif.

It represents distinctive architectural elements, and is one of the most important historic features in the city.

It is now a heritage and antiquities museum. The museum has three sections: The period before Islam, beginning from the Stone Age to Jahiliya; Islamic heritage; and the Kingdom’s unification. It contains a large number of important artifacts.
