The researchers did not address it in terms of history, architecture and archeology. It is truly a living source of history, civilization and heritage. The Bassam family, five meters away from the center of Sarat Abidah governorate, is on the road that connects the governorate with the southern Dhahran Governorate, which is the international road that links the Asir region with the Najran region and leads to the Arab Yemeni Republic. Because we rarely find it in the Asir region, as it is characterized by multiple roles, so that some of them reach five floors, and they are of traditional construction, linked with each other by what is called the shed, which facilitates the transition between its residents; and this method worked to protect, and to avoid the enemy that might lie in wait for them At night, as it is characterized by the flow of torrents, it was taken into account that during the construction it is taken into account that the disposal of torrents from the bottom of these buildings, and through traditional channels from the bottom of the buildings.

Special entrances to the people of the village use the tribal properties and when necessary. And the fact that the village is surrounded by mountains from three sides, when the rain falls, the village is exposed to the flow of strong torrents, especially from the north and west, and for this reason, surface channels have been created to distribute the torrents in the south and east in a way that guarantees their distribution to farms on both sides. The torrent is according to the agreed quotas, and the tribe is working to maintain and monitor it continuously.
