Empowering Economic Development by Promoting Saudi Arabia’s Cultural Heritage

Nadia Yusuf

Abstract


Saudi Arabia is known for its unique historical heritage mainly in western regions such as the tombs and the castles. Some of these features are significant to Islam. However, other sites can be traced back during the pre-Islamic period. Saudi Arabia also has specific landmarks such as the Arabian Peninsula and pre-Islamic Fort towns. Other natural landscapes such as the volcanoes and historical wells are some of the important features for tourist attraction. Preserving Saudi’s heritage should be a priority. This is important in creating a vibrant community and also sustains the local economies. The proposed program is to rehabilitate and preserve some of the country’s rich cultural heritage and raise awareness of the importance of specific historical sites which forms part of the people memory and a national pride.
