Called the "Palace of Islamic Civilizations," the structure located north of the city of Abha, part of the mountains of the Namas city, was built by citizen Mohammed bin Ali Al-Maqer for 27 years. The decorations within the palace is patterned after Andalusian architecture. It has 300 Andalusian windows. There are seven domes representing the continents of the world, 360 columns marking the days of the year, as well as an Islamic cultural scene in the Kingdom with more than 20 interfaces, and its corridors surrounded by hanging gardens with three million Islamic ornament plants.
