View of a large square in the city of Abha. Rows of square one and two storey buildings made of stone sit overlooking a large square. Some of the buildings are topped with adobe and parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles to prevent weather erosion. In the background a line of low hills rises in the far left distance.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
