The building was the home for the famous Nassif family of Jeddah... If you are in Jeddah, you must visit the facility which very well maintained as a heritage site...

If you are in town then this historical architectural jem is not to be missed. Try to get your host to arrange for a roof top visit just before prayer at sun down followed by a catered Hejazi supper. It is wonderful remarkable experience.

This hsitoric building is well located at the heart of Balad. It stands next to the National Commercial Bank (NCB) Headquarters. It is something you won't miss if you are coming from Al Madinah Road on the way to Balad.
