The city is not part of the Governorate, but forms the separate administrative district of "Amanat Al-Asemah". Under the Yemeni constitution, Sanaʽa is the capital of the country, although the seat of the internationally recognised government moved to Aden in the aftermath of the September 21 Revolution. Sanaʽa is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It is situated next to the Sarawat Mountains of Jabal An-Nabi Shu'ayb and Jabal Tiyal. The Old City of Sanaʽa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has a distinctive architectural character, most notably expressed in its multi-storey buildings decorated with geometric patterns, including the Al Saleh Mosque, the largest in the city.
