RIYADH: Driven by nostalgia and a desire to reconnect with their roots, residents of Al-Aroud village in Asir region are reclaiming a piece of their ancestral homeland after a 50-year absence.

Fueled by government initiatives and their own emotional ties, they have partnered with the local municipality to transform a section of the village into a bustling hub for community gatherings.

The village comprises more than 150 houses, including three palaces and two historical fortresses, as well as a recently restored old mosque.
