Masjid an-Nabi, Medina

5.0
#1 of 179 in Things to do in Saudi Arabia
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Built on the site of the Prophet Muhammad's second mosque after his move to the city in 622 CE, Masjid an-Nabi is one of the holiest sites in Islam and a major destination for religious pilgrimage. Originally an open-air structure that contained a house of worship, court, school, and community center, the mosque has expanded and now includes a vast marble courtyard, white walls enclosing massive prayer rooms, several spindly minarets, and a large green dome over the tomb of the Prophet. Dress modestly and look closely at the design details for secret symbols inserted by the architects. Put Masjid an-Nabi into our Medina trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Where to stay in Medina

As a crucial pilgrimage destination and one of the holiest places in Islam, Medina offers a huge variety of accommodations, though non-Muslim visitors should note that most lodgings cluster in the city center, accessible to Muslims only. Visitors can choose from a wide range of lodgings, from low-cost inns with basic facilities to grandiose five-star hotels. Generally centrally located, the hotels generally get pricier the nearer they are to the Grand Mosque. Non-muslims have the option of staying at the hotel near the airport, outside of the forbidden zone.
