Return to once forgotten village
The district was named Bit Bos, after Bos, the first man to dwell in the mountainous village. It lies south of the capital city, just seven kilometers away, and there are 300 multi-level homes, according to the Capital City Towns and Villages website.
Scenic locations riddled with green patches are perched on top of the mountain, resembling an immortal legend of the distant past, like a tale narrating itself. This tale says, “This district resembles the paradise of God," due to its overwhelming greenness and beauty.
The simple Yemeni Jewish people who made Bit Bos their home eventually departed when the water ran out. The used to depend on Kamaram Dam, but after a long drought, Imam Al-Hadi suggested the village's residents sell their land and leave for Raida, Sada'a and Bajil, especially when their population decreased because of their immigration to Palestine.
Today, impoverished families dwell in the desolate homes left behind.
