About At Taif

At Ta'if is a metropolis in Mecca Province of Saudi Arabia at an elevation of 1,879 m on the slopes of Sarawat Mountains. It has a population of 1,200,000 human beings and is the unofficial summer season capital. The metropolis is the center of an agricultural vicinity recognized for its grapes, pomegranate, figs, roses and honey. The inhabitants of Ta'if are largely made from Saudi Arabian tribes.

There also are vast overseas populations of expats, more often than not from Asia, Turkey, and other Arab international locations which might be also present in Ta'if. In the 6th century the city of Ta'if turned into ruled via the Banu Thaqif tribe, which nevertheless lives in and across the town of Taif nowadays. It has been suggested that Jewish tribes who were displaced by means of Ethiopian Christians in the Himyarite Kingdom wars settled near Taif.

The city is ready a 100 km southeast of Mecca. The walled city turned into a spiritual centre because it housed the idol of the goddess Allat, who turned into then known as "the woman of Ta'if." Its climate marked the metropolis out from its dry and barren neighbours in the direction of the Red Sea. Wheat, vines, and fruit have been grown around Ta'if and that is how the city earned its title "the Garden of the Hejaz". During the Year of the Elephant, this city became worried in the activities. Both Ta'if and Mecca had been hotels of pilgrimage.
