Masjid an-Nabi, Medina

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.
