Baraqish used to be the capital of the ancient kingdom of Ma'in. It sits on a wadi in northern Yemen. Around 400 BC it was an important center that was protected by massive city walls and watchtowers.

There is little left of Baraqish and apart from the city walls, most of the settlement is in ruins. In the center of town are the remains of a mosque and a temple.

There is no accommodation in Baraqish, as the town is completely deserted. The best place to stay is Al Hazm, several kilometers to the north, although many people prefer to stay in Ma'rib, where more facilities and transportation to San'a are available. Baraqish is 100 km northeast of San'a.
