In antiquity, the Yarim area was the core of the Himyarite Kingdom, which ruled over much of Southern Arabia from about 115 BC to about AD 575. The Himyarite capital of Zafar was located about 9 miles south of Yarim.
The name refers to the highlands on which it sits, and originates from Ar'ama (verb) which derived into Aram, A'rm, Yareem, and Maryama. It appears as villages' names in the Western mountain regions of Yemen, Asir and Syria.
