MedinaBeautiful mosques in Islam's second holiest place.
The Medina of Saudi Arabia is a living, breathing time capsule that offers a fascinating glimpse into the heart of this traditional and conservative Muslim country. Located in the city of Mecca, the Medina is home to the world’s largest mosque, the Masjid al-Haram, and is home to around a million people. The narrow, winding streets are a labyrinth of markets, mosques, and homes, and are a hive of activity day and night. The Medina is a place where tradition and modernity clash and coexist, and where visitors can see everything from ancient relics to women in full burkhas. It’s a unique and eye-opening experience, and one that is not to be missed when visiting Saudi Arabia.
