- German archaeological team discovers Sabaean Kingdom temple ruins
Yemen Observer, Mar 29, 2008
The German Archaeological Institute in Yemen has recently announced that
one of their teams has discovered a temple in Sirwah, located east of
Sana'a. The temple dates back to the Sabaean Kingdom, which ruled Yemen
during the seventh and eighth centuries B.C.E. The temple, known as
al-Magah, is in good condition, with huge entrance posts and massive
interior rooms. The German Institutes's manager in Sana'a said that the
temple's front design and building materials are unique in Yemen. They
are made of wood and stone, with tower-like protrusions weighing over
six tons each.
