Jeddah: Stately Villa Gate

Many of the villa gates of Jeddah stand out and make a statement.  They range from grand to flamboyant to stately to fancy and on and on.  This one has the sides and topper made of beautiful thick marble which matches the walls.  I always wonder about the gates with a topper over them like this one though.  A larger moving truck possibly wouldn't be able to fit through this gate's opening, so I wonder about the practicality.

It does look formidable!

I think it is meant to imitate the Arabic style arch. I find this one a bit weird.
