One of the most important open tourist destinations in the region, Al Bujairi neighborhood is distinguished by its winding alleys and its low mud houses. It’s the same place that accommodated the house of Sheikh Muhammad bin Abdulwahab, the well-known religious scholar and theologian from the Najd.
The museums in Diriyah, four of which are inside At-Turaif Quarter, offer an interactive experience through time and cultures, featuring some of the most fascinating objects from Saudi history.
