Discover Temples of the Moon and Sun Yemen

Around Ma'rib, you can visit the ruins of the Moon and Sun temples, dating from the era of King Saba. However, the site is undergoing work and is a little disappointing. It's also worth seeing the location and principle behind the main sea wall and the canal system in use in the 4th century.

    On the outskirts of the town of Ma'rib stand two temples devoted to the moon and the sun, erected during the time of the Sabaean kingdom, the capital of which was Ma'rib.
