Visited today with my family to find the well closed. It's been closed for the last 2 months and will be closed for another 2 months we have been told due to improvement work. Very disappointing! The listing online should be updated to show it's temporarily closed, to save people a wasted journey.

This well is famous for its historical contribution in giving services to thousands of Prophets and it is live for many centuries. People visit this place and get water to use as relic.

The al-Ghars Well (بئر غرس) is a historic water well in the city of Medina, Saudi Arabia. Traditionally it is believed that the prophet Muhammad drank from this well once, and also made a request that be bathed with its water after his demise.
