    You can enjoy an Amazing view of Riyadh that gives you a great perspective of the size of the city. The access is from the mall and it was a nice experience. I recommend to go in the afternoon so you can see day and night views with sunset . Just beautiful .
    The only downside no souvenir shop ! Which was disappointing as we wanted to buy some gifts

    Masjid Nabwi is the most peaceful, calm and serene place to be. It is the second most sacred place for Muslims. It is the dream of millions of Muslims. The beauty of the mosque is exquisite but more importantly the prayers in this mosque are of much reward.

    Khana e Kaaba, Masjid e Haraam, Grand Masjid of Makkah are the different names muslim call this place.
    This place is the most sacred among all and is popular being Allah's home. All the Muslims prays facing in Kabba's direction from any place around the globe.
    We Muslims do tawaaf means 7 anticlockwise rounds and ask forgiveness from God Almighty.
    It's a great unbelievable experience with greatest satisfaction.
    Every year there is a ritual of Hajj in Makkah and ends after performing Tawaaf at grand masjid around Kaaba and millions of Muslim attend it in the 12th islamic month zilhuj. Those come to visit other than Hajj is called Umrah and it takes few hours to perform umrah.
    The Grand Masjid of Makkah is a very impressive huge building comprising of Basement + Ground + one + roof top. It has 9 minarets 89 metres each on which Azaan prayer call is served 5 times a day. At present the covered area of this Masjid is 3,56,000 m²
    Its construction initially done by Prophet Ebrahm AS some 2000BC and still expanding.

    This is a big mall, with lots of stores and restaurants. The stores are mostly foreign brands that you'll find in malls in other cities like Paris, London, or in the US. The restaurants are also mostly foreign brands, so if you are looking for Saudi cuisine, this is not a good choice. However, if you want 5 guys, McDonalds, Shake Shack, KFC, or other American brands, you'll find them here. They even have a PF Chang restaurant, but I didn't try it to see how the food compared to the American restaurants.

    The very sight of it mesmerized me and I could sit the entire day just gazing at it and reflecting my thoughts on the history behind it. It just does not suffice to write few words

    Beautiful outdoors calm by the sea area.
    Sea side park near shops.
    Nice for a picnic or just sit and walk outdoors.
    Lots of stray cats everywhere.

    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.

    It's a really wonderful place to spend time with children. Pack your picnic and headout. It was great experiencing nature. In winters it could get cold by evening. We also saw a show which was projected on the walls of the palace about history.. enjoyed to the core.

    Kids have their own set of fun and enjoyment running around and playing in the open space. It was maintained neatly.

    For a Muslim to complete Umrah, the walk between Safa and Marwa is a must known as Sa’e. 7 rounds of the walk with duas make you reflect on life and the challenges we face which are small compared to what Hajra faced at the time running between the two hills in search of help or water for Ismael. May Allah be pleased with them. Glad to have made this journey ❤️

    Amazing experience visiting Uhud. Would definitely recommend this place, but make sure to spend time and appreciate the efforts the prophet and his companions went through for Islam. Would urge those visit to climb the ‘Archers Mountain’ (very easy) and if you have time, take a walk alongside Uhud mountain to find the Masjid the Prophet prayed at

    Off off with your head! Dance dance till you’re dead, head will roll, heads will roll on the floor!

    Just like the song, a fun square with authentic places for trying sweet and tasty milk tea and super friendly locals who love a good party of life!
    The police even passed by to thank me for visiting Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦. You can definitely see that they love foreigners and are opening up for tourists!
    I went quite the extra mile for be heading over and seeing this square and it was worth it!
    Loved it and will be back, oh and they have amazing kebab on this square too!
