Large Incense Burner - Al Balad

This public incense burner is actually small compared to others that I have seen around the city.  Many incense burners here in Saudi Arabia are much taller than the gentleman in this photo.  This one is located in the old part of the city called Al Balad.  Khalid Khafagy operates Tour Arabia, which offers tours around Jeddah and other parts of Saudi Arabia.  This photo was taken on a recent tour of Al Balad.  Khalid has been nominated for a Saudi Excellence in Tourism Award 2014 in the Best Tour Guide category.  You can vote for him by clicking here

It looks like those could hold more incense than one could burn at any one time.
