Historical Sites Survay

Almost a century and a half ago the city of Omdurman that we see today flourished to become the capital of the Mahdia and later the culture capital of Sudan; it still retains a large portion of its urban form from its early days, with a lot of its architecture still intact. Under this project many of these buildings were mapped out and documented.
