Al Mazrah named places and points of interest in detail
There are 18 points of interest to check out in Al Mazrah. Here’s a little information about each one:
- Oasis: Several freshwater ponds and palm trees offer a respite from the desert beyond.
- Taraq Town: A united offensive reduced this once peaceful town to mere rust and rubble. The tight confines of these areas make it conducive to small squad combat, especially duels.
- Rohan Oil: One of the largest employers in the region, the Rohan Oil refinery is strategically located near some of Adal’s oldest oil derricks.
- Quarry (Al Safwa Quarry) – Huge deposits of limestone make the Quarry one of the three largest industrial areas in Al Mazrah, with almost a dozen warehouses and hundreds of individually chiseled stone blocks.
- Al Mazrah City: Skyscrapers and modern buildings are the center of Al Mazrah’s biggest landmark. It was planned to be the ideal city: it soon welcomed almost a million people, who were expelled to the slums on the outskirts.
- Hydroelectric (Zarqwa Hydroelectric): A combination of historical monuments, mid-century ways of life and modern industrial buildings are scattered around the rivers that generate electricity for this small town, as well as the entire region.
- Marshlands (Mawizeh Marshlands): Marshlands was once home to the ambitious River Diamond Luxury Resort in the 20th century. Now, due to the rising river level, it and the city around it are completely flooded, both by water from the rivers and by garbage flowing from the city to the north.
- Caves (Sattiq Caves) – A deep network of underground hiding places lies within sight of a small village, where a plane once crashed, built into the side of a mountain. Elsewhere, a tall communications tower and a small cluster of houses extend towards the Quarry.
- Observatory (Zaya Observatory) – At the top of Al Mazrah’s highest mountain, several domed structures, including one destroyed, help the region map the stars. Note the research facilities between each of the observation buildings.
- Al Sharim Pass – This ancient monastery and mausoleum overlooks a modern village and zoo. The highest hill contains several modernized buildings over the rest of the area, partially destroyed due to the elements and war.
- Ahkdar Village – This World Heritage Site consists of a central courtyard, and market areas define the western half, while more modern apartments make up the eastern half.
- Sa’id City: A sprawling, modern shopping center is juxtaposed with former apartments that housed generations of dockworkers. The area also contains a medieval-themed carnival and a minor league soccer stadium.
- Port (Hafid Port) – The port is the economic gemstone of Al Mazrah, ending the Rohan pipeline to the larger seas. Several large storage structures can be found inside, while the port itself has few containers due to international economic restrictions for the region.
- Sawah Town – Rising sea levels caused this once-bustling coastal town to be submerged underwater, and a crashed cargo ship was a symptom rather than the cause of the evacuated population.
- Cemetery (El Samman Cemetery) – A war memorial, an important cemetery, it is now largely abandoned and neglected, especially with a collapsed water tower that flooded dozens of graves. The area is completely open to the elements, with a broken stone wall defining its boundaries.
- Sariff Bay: Home to the country’s valuable fisheries, this bay maintains the history of Al Mazrah as well as Adal. It contains a vibrant downtown section with suburbs, a modern tourist center and some small islands.
- Al Bagra Fortress: The definition of the region’s medieval history, this walled island city was a museum dedicated to displaying its cultural importance until the occupation. Note the large crab factory at the eastern end, an overflow from the adjacent Sariff Bay.
- Airport (Al Malik Airport) – Terminal at the southern end of Al Mazrah, this modern airport combines traditional and modern architecture to accommodate both business and leisure activities.
