So good, they named them three times!

Written in Arabic as رياض and variously by Europeans as riad, ryad or riyad.
A riad is a traditional home built around an internal garden. Literally riad means garden, not house! This courtyard design with no external windows is very practical keeping the home cool and secure. It also has its roots in the Islamic culture of the country allowing privacy for the household and particularly its womenfolk.
