The pavilion is in fact a "Samsara", a traditional Yemeni business. The wattle and daub buildings, reflecting a centuries-old tradition
reproduce the cities of Sana'a and Shibam.

On the first floor a very rare tree, the "Dam-Alakoin" was presented and on the second floor was the terrace of the building.

On this level, the visitor could walk around the entire enclosure and have a beautiful view of the entire eastern part of the site.

Inside this building there were many Yemeni craftsmen who made jewellery and other traditional objects.
