Discover with us the beauty and mystery of Arabia Felix
The Yemen - AL-YAMAN - has in the historical books various names.
The ancient geographers called the Yemen as "Arabia Felix".
In the Old Testament the Yemen is mentioned with the synonyms - the South and the Queen of Sheba, the Queen of the South and Queen Timna. People say, that the word AL-YAMAN derives from the name of the king AYMAN IBN YA'RUB BEN QAHTAN.
The old Arabic legends and even the Yemenis say that AL-YAMAN derives from the word AL-YUMN (blessing and prosperity). This meaning agrees with the name "Arabia Felix".
Others say the classification AL-YAMAN derives from yumna - right from the Kaaba.... The Arabs orientate themselves towards the right direction, because the right side is a symbol of fortune.
Still some Yemenis always express with the word "AL-SHAM" the North and with AL-YAMAN the South.
Today the Yemen is called "Republic of Yemen".
Since ancient times Yemen has enchanted travelers, merchants, philosophers and kings with its secrets and its wealth.
