And this is an update. There is a guide here. If you want a guide, there is a guide here. I told you earlier that there is no guide, but there was a guide up there who stopped us. I think you saw in the video that there is a Navy port there, so don't make a video there. He gave us a money bag. I mean, we had some money left. He gave us that bag.

There is a mosque and a dargah after us. There was an old imam here. And you can go there by cable car. The cable car goes that way. There is no connection from here to the fort. And if you want to come, the local buses are also coming from the city below.
To Santa Cruz. And a lot of kids are coming. There are holidays going on here these days. This is January 2024. Old Town The place you are seeing now is Dargah Siddi Al Huwari. There was an imam here named Old Town.
He was born in 1350. And he died in 1449. He was considered a saint at that time. And it is still very popular here. And this is Old Town of Oran.
It's a very old place. Brother Nadir said that if there is any prayer, read it here. It is accepted here.
So, my prayer is that there should be peace and tranquility in the world. This environment that has been created in the whole world, which is killing people. Don't let this happen. My prayer was for this place. Old Town Now we have stopped at the Arena of Oran.
Which is a historical building. And this arena used to be used for bullfighting. Let's see from inside. Hey Nadir, how are you brother? I feel I am gladiator. Gladiator? Okay, let's fight.
And you want to fight with a girl, right? Yes. Only for girls? Perfectly. Yes, only for girls. Brother, this is history.
The sole bullring in Algeria. The unique in its style in Africa. Built by the Spanish settlers in Oran City in 1906 AD.
Opened its door to build bullfighting. Orida in Spanish. This was built by the Spanish settlers in 1906-1910. After that, a lot of activities have been done here. And it was not just bullfighting. These are some old photos of bullfighting.
And boxing was also done here. This was the bullfighting ground. Arena. And these are the upper seats. Look at the architecture.
There are so many pillars below. No matter how many people sit on it. I think the old architecture was better. Or is it better today? I don't know. I like the old architecture better. You tell me, what do you think? Today's or old? I mean, how much strength did they have? In the old architecture.
I like this better. Nowadays, there are a lot of tools. Cranes, etc.
There was nothing before. Everything is man-made. Everything used to be handmade. And now everything is done by machines. Think about the architecture.
How would these things have been made then? I am surprised to see such things. We have just landed in Old City. City Center, Oran. And this is the view. Local buses.
Old colonial buildings. I woke up around 7 in the morning. So I saw the temperature on the phone.
It was 8 degrees. And now it is 2 o'clock in the afternoon. And the temperature here is around 22 degrees. So it shows 22 degrees on the phone. And the best time to come here.
If you are coming from the north side. The capital of Algeria is Oran. All this is in the north.
So you can come to the north side for about 12 months. August and July are a little hot here. And the desert area. There is a Gardaia down there. So in the south.
The best time there is around December, January, February. And there used to be a Jewish temple here. Today it has been turned into a mosque. So an old Jewish temple. Oran.
You can call it a mosque. And this is the history of this place. Abdullah Ibn Salam Mosque. It used to be a Jewish temple.
And the specialty of it is. Some of its stones. They have been brought from Jerusalem. And some marble columns.
Brought from Italy. Some from Italy. And its doors have been brought from Spain. And in 1962, after the independence of Algeria.
And after the Jews left here. It was turned into a mosque. There is no road here.
You can cross anywhere. And the zebra crossing is not a problem. But by looking. And don't make Instagram at all. You will get hurt on the road. What? No Arabic.
Turkish? No. Brother, don't ask anything. This is the benefit of being local. I mean, if you are local together. Then you understand. Otherwise, I understood.
That he must be asking for some money. Anyway, let's move on. I don't know. You take money out of your pocket. What he sees.
What he doesn't see. I don't know. So whenever there is such a situation. Try brother. Don't give anything to anyone. And Namaste.
Sorry. Go ahead. Welcome to Darb. Darb. Here in Oran. Brother, this is the Darb area.
What do you see? Dangerous. Dangerous. Brother, this is the Darb area.
Here in Oran. And it's not very safe. It used to be very dangerous.
This area. Now. It's a little better. But when you come. So it's not safe to come here at night. Brother, if you are a local.
Then come here. The smell of hashish is coming here. Brother. Here. Hashish and all.
A little. Carefully. There is no need to come. What is the need to come to these alleys? See in the camera. See in the video.
Brother. In this area. A lot of.
There have been shootings of movies. When in Afghanistan. They show the face of Iraq. It must have been of the same type. Shooting here. Hollywood movies.
Oh brother. I have seen a dog. At least. There is no dog here. So brother.
Hollywood movie people. Find such locations. Right.
Boys. Boys. Something. Something. Standing in the corner.
They are selling something. Something wrong. Maybe.
So now we are standing. In the center. Exactly. This is the center of Oran. City center.
And. Maybe. Here. There is a monument. What is it for? Freedom fighters.
Should be. What is this monument brother? It's for. Nasr.
For. Win. Win.
Win. Our war. With France. Okay. With France.
The same brother. The same brother. For freedom fighters. Should be. And when this war won. From France.

Okay. Before France. Okay. But now. They make this. Okay.
This is Amir Abdul Qadir. He is famous. Fighter. Freedom fighter. First one.
Yes. First one. He fight with France. Okay.

Now we have stopped at a shop. The crowd is here. Here Juice. Okay. Here drinking water and thing. Okay.
And this place. What is this? Right. You see.
It's for Coffee. Little bit. Is it? Yes. Okay. We will see. We will see.
We will see. No. Now it's the time to stop. They are going to clear the way. Yes. And near that.
They are clearing the way. And then. This is a bread with hummus in it, it's a famous thing here, we had it yesterday as well, let's try it now. Vegetarians can eat here, there is a lot of food for vegetarians in Algeria. I ate the bread, but this juice is very tasty. It's fun to sit and eat like a local.
Different world, different people, different culture. That's why I always look for locals. It's good to have a local with you.
If you don't have a local with you, you can't trust him. If you don't have a local with you, you can't trust him. Especially in unknown countries. In other countries, you can watch videos of other people.
But in such a country, where no one has come from us, it's a little scary. Because we don't know what the culture is, what the system is. If you go to Paris, you know that you have to be careful. There is robbery, you don't even know about it here.
So if anyone comes close, it's scary. That's why it's good to have a local with you. Okay, this was the city center of Oran. Now let's go ahead and see if we can see anything new.
First, we have paid the parking charge. 40 Indian Rupees It's been about 2 hours since we parked the car. So now we have stopped at Mr. Chicken. He told me that he really likes chicken here.
It's like KFC here. Let's try it. So this is the menu. And it's a bucket of 320 rupees. I'm telling you in Indian, it's written 800, so it's 320. This is the money if you get it changed from the black market.
There are 3 and 2, 5 pieces in this. I don't know what else will come, we'll see. And this is what I saw.
Look here, Indian, Mexican. Our Indian food is already famous. But now Indian spices and Indian taste are being shown all over the world.
So we started sitting in Mr. Chicken. And this is what I saw from inside. Big Bazaar. Big Bazaar is here too, but it has doubled in Bazaar. And the rest, the name is Big Bazaar.
Sometimes the city is modern, sometimes it's very old. It's a mixed culture. We have eaten food. And the bill is about 1000 Indian rupees. So you can eat good food for 400 to 500 rupees at one time. I may have told you before, here in Algeria.
And because we were in Algiers, I told you there. Now we are in Oran City, I told you here. And it's 6.15 in the evening.
And we have seen Oran City. You must have got a view of Oran City. So let's go now. Let's finish this video here.
And see you in the next video. Namaste. Thank you. Jai Hind.
