Welcome to Al Murabba'a Palace

Al Murabba'a Palace

Al Murabba'a Historical Palace was built in the early 1900s as private accommodation for the king. Now a principal component of the King Abdulaziz Darat (an institute and library devoted to preserving Arabian history), situated just outside the original city walls, the palace has been preserved as a living example of Arabian royal life in days gone by. On the ground floor are the guard's room and storerooms, while upstairs visitors can view the reception salons, political offices and private apartments.
