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.
