Al Masjid an Nabawi, Medina

4.9
Built on the site of the Prophet Muhammad's second mosque after his move to the city in 622 CE, Al Masjid an Nabawi is one of the holiest sites in Islam and a major destination for religious pilgrimage. Originally an open-air structure that contained a house of worship, court, school, and community center, the mosque has expanded and now includes a vast marble courtyard, white walls enclosing massive prayer rooms, several spindly minarets, and a large green dome over the tomb of the Prophet. Dress modestly and look closely at the design details for secret symbols inserted by the architects.

  • In this blessed place you feel contended, at peace, feel happy to be so lucky and granted blessings to greet our Holy Prophet. And pray in the same place where our Prophet prayed. It is something every body should experience. The ambience of the mosque and its cleanliness everything is fine.
  • Very peaceful place heart touching feeling so blessed here. I really love this place. Everything is perfect here. management is great. All places is very clean. Washroom also clean. Parking is available any time. Shopping not very expensive you manage. But food is not good in some cases.
