Baeshen House Courtyard

This is the private courtyard of the Baeshen House, which is in the Al Balad section of Old Jeddah.   There is built in seating along the walls and verses from the Q'uran written along the top of the walls.  The family could enjoy being out in the fresh air and still have privacy at the same time.  This area of the home was also used at times for praying.  The Baeshen House is no longer inhabited but is made available for tours.
