King's Fountain, Jeddah

(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Considered the fountain of historical landmarks of Jeddah where feature stunning looks especially during sunset and preferred to visit Jeddah in winter period, where the fantastic atmosphere and a tourist or visitor who sit in designated places and walshahi coffee or get some food. Where the taller Jeddah municipality recently organized area to be a magnet for everyone.

  • This fountain is a " ICON " on Red Sea @ Jeddah Cornish. Its a beautiful land mark which can be viewed from long distance.
  • Nice view on Jeddah's corniche but usually very crowdy
  • Beautiful scenery of the fountain from Jeddah corniche. It is one of largest fountain in the world
  • King Fahad Fountain at Jeddah Corniche is a beautiful sight, specially during windy days where the wind blows the fountain shower to farther angular distance, creating a spectacular view. On the day of Saudi Arabia independence day, the Saudi flag is usually seen as projected on the fountain shower, creating an amazing view. It has indeed become a symbol for Jeddah.
  • Nice fountain and nice views!! If you have the possibility, it is a good place to visit.
