Mount Uhud, Medina
(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
The largest mountain in Medina and a major pilgrimage site, Mount Uhud commemorates the famous battle between Muslim and Meccan forces in 625 CE. Climb a small hill to observe the site of the battlefield, and see the burial places of the Prophet Muhammad's 50 companions who perished, most notably his uncle Hamza. A mosque also stands on site. The mount rises 1,077 m (3,533 ft) and bears a large painted inscription of the word "Allah" in Arabic on its slope. Make Mount Uhud a centerpiece of your Medina vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Medina vacation builder.
