Description

This beautiful site stands tall at the start of the road leading to the holiest city for Muslims, Makkah. Baab Makkah has witnessed hundreds of millions of pilgrims make their journey to the home town of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH). 

It is a three-arched gateway with a large turret on each side, providing support and entrance from Jeddah to Makkah. It serves as a historic monument in one of the oldest areas of Jeddah and has been preserved with great care since the 1940’s when the wall around Makkah was torn down. When you look at this majestic structure you can tell that it would have been impenetrable in its heyday.

Well, I expected something really extraordinary and monumental but in fact this gate is a bit disappointing. its in the middle of a demolished area and totally neglected. I suggest you look at pictures in Internet instead of ordering a taxi to go there.

The Mecca gate was historically the most important gate for Jeddah, Arabia's official pilgrim port. It stands at the start of the road that led to Islam's holiest city. In the last 14 centuries, billions of pilgrims have passed beneath it. The impressive three-arched recreation is flanked by large round turrets. The gate looks as though it would've been impregnable in its day, when it would've been supported by a wall that circumnavigated the entire city.
