The awesome Prophet’s Mosque of Madinah is truly a beautiful house of worship, inside and out. It houses the tomb of the Prophet Mohammed himself and is built on the exact spot that Mohammed personally selected. Originally built on this sight almost 1500 years ago, it has undergone complete rebuilding, remodeling, embellishing, and enlarging over the years. The grounds include an enormous marble tile square or courtyard surrounding the entire perimeter of the mosque. Surrounding the mosque and its courtyard are dozens and dozens of hotels, which also offer restaurants and shopping. Today the mosque stands as a spectacular Islamic center that can accommodate up to half a million worshippers at one time.

About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
