Floating Mosque, Jeddah

4.2
#3 of 14 in Sightseeing in Jeddah
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Visit Jeddah's Floating Mosque, known for leaving the impression of floating on the water's surface. Situated on the city's corniche on the Red Sea coast, the mosque appears to be floating at high tide. Strolling by the waterfront you can admire the striking building, designed in a traditional Islamic architectural style with modern elements. Illuminated with vibrant colors at night and boasting a scenic sea location, it provides a great backdrop for some postcard-like photos. Work out when and for how long to visit Floating Mosque and other Jeddah attractions using our handy Jeddah tour planner.

  • Nashville is "mercy" building on the sea in the North to Jeddah Corniche, the great Islamic civilizational pedagogue Ounara Islamist, worth a visit.

Where to stay in Jeddah

A major pilgrimage and commercial site with large numbers of visitors year-round, Jeddah offers a wide range of accommodations, ranging from low-budget to super deluxe. Hotels spread primarily along the north part of the town port, with another large cluster found in Mecca. Beachfront establishments can be found predominantly in Atallah Happy Land Park in the north, and in Al Hamra’a next to the port, while budget hotels are scattered around Al Faisaliyah. You can find most major international chain hotels throughout the city. Outside Hajj season, accommodation in Jeddah is generally cheaper than that in Riyadh.
