Great Mosque of Mecca
Part of the Hajj pilgrimage, this mosque is the largest in the world & holds up to 4 million people. Its unique role in Islam is reflected in his full name “Makkah Al-Mukarramah”, which stands for “Makkah the Honored”, also translated as the “Holy City of Makkah”.
Located in the city of Mecca, this beautiful Masjid Al Haram, also called as the House of God, is one of the most sacred places in the world. Being the largest mosque in the world, this holy mosque also known as Kaaba is the magnificent place in Saudi Arabia where Muslims come from all around the world for pilgrimage. Covering the area of 88.2 acres this holy land has the capacity for around four million pilgrims and every year Pilgrims gather in very large number to perform Hajj. Kaaba has a cuboid shaped structure with simple and remarkably modest architecture.
For its beautiful praying area and Islamic historical aspects, it is the center of great affiliation for Muslims who live peacefully and spend their time worshiping. At 20m from Kaaba, a very fascinating well of Zamzam water is located which started in circa, 2150 BCE and is still produces water which is also considered sacred.
