Al Seif Palace

Between 1907 and 1908, Sheikh Mubarak Al Sabah greatly extended the Seif Palace, which was originally built in the late 1800s. Starting in 1988, it was expanded and modernized even further. The aerial photograph below comes from  the book “Kuwait from Above.” The older photographs come from “Kuwait by the first Photographers” and show the palace during the time of Sheikh Mubarak.

These images come from The Kuwait Urbanization by Saba George Shiber.
