Description

Located on the west coast of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in Jeddah, King Fahad’s Fountain is so named because it was donated to the city of Jeddah by King Fahad. Constructed between 1980 to 1983 and opened to the public in 1985, King Fahad’s Fountain is the tallest of its kind in the world, with a maximum water height of 853 ft which is taller than the Eiffel Tower (without the antenna).

Design

Visible from across the city of Jeddah, King Fahad’s Fountain can eject a total of 16 tons of water in their air every day at a speed of 375 km/h. The fountain looks the best after nightfall when it is illuminated by over 500 lights built into the fountain's design. The water changes colors as it soars skywards against the night sky and makes for a mesmerizing sight that one has to see to believe. 

Best time to visit

If you can get there just before sunset you can easily find a good vantage point because most tourists get there after sunset. Plus you will be able to enjoy the view of the setting sun, shining over the sea as tiny water droplets from the fountain caress your skin and create a relaxing and soothing effect. 

Afterward, you can take a detour across the road to the Ritz Carlton Hotel street where food stalls, cafés, and restaurants serve some of the best coffee, sandwiches, and pastries in the city.
