Saudi Arabia’s city of Abha has been covered in a blanket of purple as its trees bloom, photographs shared online showed.

Abha is the capital of Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Asir province and is a popular tourist destination for Saudi Arabians due to its mild climate, stemming from its location in hills 2,270 meters above sea level.

The city is immersed in vegetation and has a large number of Jacaranda trees known for their distinct purple flowers. This week, the Jacaranda trees bloomed – with Abha residents sharing images of the city covered in purple.

Abha was named the Capital of Arab Tourism in 2017 by the Arab League’s Arab Tourism Organization.
