King's Fountain, Jeddah

4.2
Fed by saltwater from the Red Sea, King's Fountain represents one of the tallest fountains in the world, shooting into the sky a single plume of water. Visible across Jeddah, the fountain was completed in 1985, donated to the city by King Fahd. The iconic landmark is visible from many vantage points, but remains most impressive when viewed from the shoreline. Head to the water's edge and see the sheer force of the single fountain jet, lit up as the sun goes down for that picture-perfect moment.

  • Another destination from my Jeddah Trip. This place is situated just opposite the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Jeddah. One time visit with friends and family. Good place to capture some long exposure photographs. Will share the photos soon. No entry fees. Open for all. See photo of the fountain along with nearby hotels.
  • King Fahd's Fountain also cited as Jeddah Fountain is situated on the west coast of Saudi Arabia. The fountain is the tallest of its type in the world and hence it is visible throughout the vicinity of Jeddah. Multiple lights adorn the fountain during the night creating spectacular views of this humongous fountain.
  • I visited this place with family and friends. This fountain is located in Jeddah on Red Sea.This is the tallest fountain jet n the world, even: taller than the Geneva one, Surrounding area is also good.
