The Janadriah Festival, held annually at Janadriah located at the outskirt of Riyadh, is a two-week celebration and showcase of overwhelming multitude of diverse and fascinating crafts, arts, music, customs, and traditions of Saudi Arabia.
This Festival challenges the sightseer's senses – whether sound, sight, touch, smell, or taste – demonstrating music that are played in traditional instruments, the sights of dancers and colorful handicrafts, uniquely crafted items, tastes of flavorful sweets and savory foods, the smell of sweet scent of roses, and the alluring aroma of freshly ground coffee beans.
This book, through its colorful pictures, will present the reader with a journey to the Festival itself while filling their imagination with Saudi Arabia's noble heritage and its glorious past, connecting the country's past with its promising future.
