Ibn battuta journey to yemen

  1. 1. Ibn Battuta Journey to Yemen By Rachel Rosenberg, Michael Minasyan, Samantha Shapiro, and Trachelle Robinson
  2. 2. Zabid The city of Zabid had luxurious gardens, with many streams and fruits such as bananas. The town is very large and populous with palm groves, orchards, and it is known and the most beautiful town in Yemen. It is in the interior, not the coast, and it is one of the capital cities of the country. The people are very nice and welcoming. Every Saturday the people of Zabid hold a picnic and every single member of the town goes to this event. Every person has a role at this picnic and Ibn Battuta went to this picnic and had a lovely time.
  3. 3. Ta’izz Ibn Battuta traveled from the town of Zabid to the town of Ta'izz, the capital of the king of Yemen. It was one of the largest and finest towns that consisted of people that were overbearing, insolent, and rude, as is generally the case in towns where kings reside. Also, this town is made up of three quarters and the principal market.
  4. 4. San’a’ Ibn Battuta set out for the town of San'a', which was the former capital. It was a populous town built of brick and plaster, with a temperate climate and good water. The whole town of San'a’ is paved, so when the rain falls it washes and cleans all the streets.
  5. 5. Aden Ibn Battuta then traveled to 'Aden, the port of Yemen and is on the coast of the ocean. Aden has no crops, trees, or water. But it has reservoirs in which rainwater is collected. It is an extremely hot place. It is the port of the Indians, and to it come large vessels from Kinbayat [Cambay], Kawlam [Quilon], Calicut and many other Malabar ports, which is located on the south-west coast of India. There are Indian and Egyptian merchants living there. Its inhabitants are all either merchants, porters, or fishermen.
