Al-Balad – the treasure in the attention of getaway Inn Jeddah

Our company is uniquely situated near both Central company District (CBD) and one of Jeddah’s best places of interest – the gleaming white Medina Gate. In the 16th century, this proud city had been beneath the rule of the Turkish Ottoman Empire, its huge wall space pierced by six staunch gates and watchtowers. Sadly, all of that stays is it one gate, the others having already been mostly torn-down inside post-war era. But the Old Town of Al-Balad continues to be mostly intact, and just a few momemts’ stroll from our resort.

As Jeddah’s business district expanded, Al-Balad was at threat of becoming torn-down in favour of high-rises. Although a lot of harm was done, it was rescued from additional development within the 1990s. In 2007 the Jeddah Urban developing Company had been created to replace the Al-Balad region and convert it to a heritage area of historic structures and standard art centres. Hefty financial investment means fix works are generally really underway, therefore the hope is produce a cultural and heritage area the equal of El-Khalili in Cairo, and to achieve addition regarding the UN’s World history listing.

To obtain Heritage Status the city requires regional along with global cooperation – something has already been partially achieved, with both international and local organizations working together regarding the repair of 30 buildings. We at Holiday Inn Jeddah cannot be better put to provide the needs of this project. Our rooms take care of both minor, exclusive group meetings and enormous community planning exhibitions.
