The ultimate pilgrimage for Muslims, Great Mosque of Mecca surrounds Kaaba, Islam's holiest shrine, thought to have been constructed by Abraham. The enormous mosque covers 35.7 hectares (88.2 acres) and can accommodate up to 1.2 million worshippers at a time. In the central courtyard lies the shrine, and a Zamzam well with holy water believed to have come straight from God. Watch the faithful flock to the site to pray and recite from the Qur'an. Security is tight and non-Muslim travelers will not be allowed to enter the city. Plan to see Great Mosque of Mecca and other attractions that appeal to you using our Mecca trip planner.
