4.2/5 based on 700+ 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.

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.
