Jeddah: Details on Museum Facade

The woodworking is amazing on Jeddah's Tayebat Museum.  I don't know how old the museum itself is, but the woodwork is regularly maintained to protect it from the effects of Jeddah's harsh climate. 

Intricate carved wood details adorn the beautiful Tayebat Museum.  The window coverings are called rawasheen and are part of Jeddah's architectural heritage.
