Depicts the building of the Central Bank of Yemen.

The Central Bank of North Yemen was established in 1971 and the Central Bank of South Yemen in 1972. When the northern and southern sectors of Yemen reunited on 22 May 1990, the Central Bank of Yemen (of the north) merged with the Bank of Yemen (of the south) under the original name of “Central Bank of Yemen”.

The bank building is composed of a three-storey plinth, on which four storeys of offices are placed on one end. The façade is built of natural stone cladding punctuated by arched openings.
