Ad'Diriyah, Riyadh

Ad'Diriyah - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
20 km North West of Riyadh, Ad'Diriyah, Saudi ArabiaMap

The significant religious movement, known as the Ad'Diriyah Convention, which was about going back from heresay to the Prophet's preachings, took place in this city. This former capital was thus, a key factor in the Jihad movement and the resulting rise of Saudi Arabia. Today, this place has turned into a picnic spot for those who wish to bask in the glory of the historic past. The city is divided into three quarters - all of which house places of interest and importance - the Turaif Quarter, the Ghusaiba Quarter and the Bujairy Quarter.
