Migrin

From Wikipedia, in a visual modern way

Migrin (Arabic: بلدة مقرن) or Miqrin, also called Riyadh Muqrin[1] was one of the major settlements in the southern outskirts of modern-day Riyadh, Saudi Arabia alongside Miʼkal that emerged from the ruins of Hajr al-Yamamah[2] in the late 16th century. Forming a vital section of the Old Riyadh area, Miqrin constituted a large part of Riyadh's present-day neighborhoods of al-Dhahirah (ad- Dirah) and al-Shemaysi.[3] A longtime rival to its neighbor Miʼkal, it was one of the most prosperous settlements in al-Yamama region, compared to ad-Diriyah, al-'Uyayna and al-Manfuhah.[4] It was reportedly named after 19th century Arab Prince Muqrin ibn Zamil.[5]
