This large structure extends over eight lanes of traffic plus a wide center highway divider. It is in the shape of an enormous bookstand holding an open book which is the Koran. The large sides of the bookstand are filled with colored glass windows in blue and green. This impressive sculpture is located right before one enters Makkah from the west on the road from Jeddah. Only Muslims are supposed to enter Islam’s holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.
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.
