Description

The tour will start from the National Museum. It has 8 different departments. Each of them transfers us to a different era. You will find yourself traveling through time in few minutes. We will start our journey at the prehistorical period where there was only one land called Panjia. Can you imagine how would the earth looked like at that time? How people used to live there? Then we will travel through time to more than thousands years in the past to talk about the stone age and how did those people survived during that time. After that, we will notice how great civilizations has appeared and how those people changed human life. Moreover, we will use the time capsule to travel 300 years back to meet the founder of the Kingdome of Saudi Arabia. We will visit some places that have emotional breath-taking stories related to king Abdulaziz and how he unified the Kingdome of Saudi Arabia. Actually, in this village ( Diriyah),,, The history of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia began,, From here, the nucleus of the Kingdom was established. From here, Diriyah was besieged for six months and was destroyed by cannons. From here we will begin the story of the beginning of the first Saudi state and how the events took place in building this kingdom. Diriyah was the original home of the Saudi royal family, and served as the capital of the Emirate of Diriyah under the first Saudi dynasty from 1727 to 1818.
