Taif is a city in the Mecca Province of southwest Saudi Arabia. It’s known for 20th-century Shubra Palace, a grand, white-walled building with latticework windows. Now the Taif Regional Museum, it exhibits artifacts from Islamic and pre-Islamic periods. In the west, King Fahad Garden has grassy lawns, restaurants and a lagoon. Just east is Taif National Park, with trees and a large dam.
