Situated just 15 minutes northwest of Riyadh, Diriyah is home to the At-Turaif UNESCO World Heritage Site, a meticulously preserved mud-brick city that served as the cradle of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the original residence of House Al Saud. Merging traditional Najdi architectural styles with contemporary urban planning, Diriyah establishes an emotional connection with visitors, celebrating the locale's rich heritage and unveiling the roots of modern Saudi Arabia, steeped in spiritual values.
This $62.2 billion development, a giga-project under the Public Investment Fund, presents a distinctive opportunity to explore, reside, work, shop, dine, and revel in the marvels of the birthplace of the Kingdom's profound heritage and culture. Designed as a sustainable landmark, Diriyah is actively engaged in initiatives centered on water conservation, energy efficiency, wellness, culture and heritage preservation, and climate change resilience. The new city is entirely walkable, promoting a healthy and active population.
