THE WALLED CITY OF HARRAR

 

The city of Harrar, one of the oldest cities in the country, was founded in the 7th century AD. Harrar was a major trading crossroad and a center of Islamic learning.

Fortified against invaders, its provocative five gate wall (Jugol) was built between the 13th and 16th centuries. The town is famous for unique layout of its houses, its intricate basketry, coffee and hyena feeding.

The narrow winding streets of Harrar contain over 99 mosques and are considered as the fourth holiest city of Islam, next to Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem.
