No aesthetic. Rude goons from the government that shoo you away because some film festival is happening across the street a few days from now. Forced to walk on the street instead of the corniche. And the view was like someone sprayed a garden hose .

A lovely place for a stroll and observe the Jeddah lifestyle . Families have picnics there lots of children . The fountain itself is nothing impressive but i enjoy the vibes.

Surely one of Jeddah's points of interest is this fountain which is the highest in the world as the water jet reaches a height of 260 meters. Clearly visible from the corniche where it is pleasant to stroll in the evening.

Take a photo as soon as you see it - don’t wait for another night or when the sun is going down etc, as it tends to be turned on or off quite randomly.

This is meant to be the tallest fountain in the world. It reminded me of the fountain in Lake Geneva and I was told that the Swiss government contributed to the construction of this one. It is impressive in the hight it reaches but the attraction is rather limited.

The highlight of my experience in Jeddah was seeing this lit up and spurting high up in to the night sky. Absolutely incredible!

If you are in Jeddah, then you have to see this fountain as it is the tallest fountain if it´s kind in the world. For great views, go to Culture Cafe and Lounge where you get unobstructed views of the sunset and the fountain!

Nice views of the fountain at night. It looks really nice and you can take nice photos as well. The fountain it seems only comes on when it gets dark out. Definitely worth the time to come here to watch and take a few photos.
