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.

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.
