Standing high above sea level, the town of Tabouk enjoys an equitable climate. Tabouk has enjoyed the benefits of a comprehensive development program, energetically implemented.

Tabouk is a town of great antiquity. In 500 B.C. Tabouk (then known as Taboo) was, with Al-Ola, the capital of Al-Ayaneyean. Tabouk is rich in historic monuments dating from before and after the time of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Today, it happily combines an egregious past with the benefits of modern development.
