Misfat Al Abriyeen village
Middle East

Misfat Al Abriyeen village is located in Wilayt Al Hamra in A'Dakhiliyah Region. It is characterised by its alleys, traditional buildings, high mud buildings, and agricultural terraces that wrap around the mountain, along with the old buildings. Misfat Al Abriyeen rises a thousand metres above sea level.

The homes of its inhabitants are at the top of the mountain and their farms are on the slope. Its decorated houses standing side by side in close proximity look like terraces waving up and down with the mountain’s terrain and give the visitor a distinctive visual pleasure. It is said that the first house in Misfat Al Abriyeen village was built two hundred years ago.


If you see Misfat Al Abriyeen village from a distance, you will imagine that the mountain grows houses and forts among its trees and flowers. People here have excavated rocks to build cities and gardens, flattened the terrain into terraces to have fertile soil for their farms, and dragged water into the  mountain and made it flow through spiral channels so as to irrigate the land and provide drinking water for the villagers.

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
