Dar al-Hajar (locally known as "the Rock Palace") is located on top of a rock outcrop (known as a "hoodoo"). It was built in the 1930s by Imam Yahya as a summer residence. At the time of my visit, it was open to the public while the interior rooms were being renovated and new stained-glass windows were being installed.
