Culture Ministry to Document Saudi Sites of Famous Arab Poets

The Ministry of Culture has embarked on documenting Saudi sites where Arab poets of the pre-Islamic era lived or were associated with throughout history, and making access to them easy by installing guiding signs.
The project is part of the "Year of Arabic Poetry" initiative; it is carried out in cooperation with the ministries of culture, municipal and rural affairs, and transport, as well as with the municipalities of the designated areas.
In Riyadh, the project documented several sites where famous poets were born and lived, such as Laila Al-Akhiliya, Qays Ibn Al-Mulawwah, Imru' al-Qays and Labid Ibn Rabi'ah. In Qassim, it also documented several sites, including Al-Shanana Tower in Al-Rass city, which was associated with Poet Zuhair bin Abi Salma.
The documentation will include many cities and regions of the Kingdom, including Al-Baha, Al-Ahsa, Taif, Haʼil, Madinah, Asir, and Najran.
Through this project, the Ministry of Culture aims to highlight the Kingdom's cultural and historical depth, and pivotal role in shaping Arab culture.
