The ruins of the Bilqis Temple, also known as Al Haram Awwam, a Sabean-era structure near Marib, Yemen.

Many of the homes in this region have incorporated into their structures huge blocks of masonry and alabaster scavenged from the scores of Sabean ruins, many of which still display inscriptions in the arcane Sabean alphabet.
