(4.7/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to Masjid al-Qiblatain, a Medina mosque known as the place where Muhammad changed the direction of prayer to Mecca. Until that point, worshipers used to face Jerusalem to conduct their prayers. One of the three oldest mosques in the world, it dates back to 623 CE and has been restored and renovated numerous times over the centuries. Take in the spiritual atmosphere and admire the pristine white walls of the building, a place of cultural and historic significance to Muslims from the very beginnings of Islam. Masjid al-Qiblatain is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Medina Edition.
