The Tahirid Amiriyya in Rada‘

One of the most impressive standing monuments from Yemen's past is the ‘Amiriyya madrasa in Rada‘, from the 16th century Tahirid era. Reconstruction on the madrasa began in 1983 with a major project funded by the Netherlands and mainly due to the inspiration and hard restoration work of Dr. Selma al-Radi (1939-2010), a long time friend and supporter of AIYS.

Selma published a history of the madrasa and the project to restore it in 1997 with Oxford University Press.

Recently a model of the madrasa was created.
