Jibla is a town in south-western Yemen and was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List due to its purported universal cultural value. Queen Arwa’s Mosque can be found here "with its white painted walls the bright sunlight made it look as if it was all made of icing sugar" - MH. Queen Arwa was highly intelligent and during her reign she built several aqueducts, opened schools and mosques for girls, oversaw agriculture, wrote 2 books and was also supportive of the arts.
