As the burial place of Prophet Muhammad, Madinah attracts thousands of pilgrims, especially during Hajj and Ramadan. To see the sun set on the magnificent Green Dome above his tomb is a profoundly personal experience for every follower of Islam.
Madinah's traditional markets and souks make for a lively shopping experience. Browse the atmospheric Old Bazaar for prayer mats and dates – a local delicacy. For modern stores and brands, enjoy an afternoon in the stylish, air-conditioned Al Rashid Mall.
Located in the heart of the Haram, just a few steps away from Masjid An Nabawi. Easy access to airport & paid parking based on availability. Luxury suites overlooking the Green Dome will leave you a memory for a lifetime. Seafood, Italian, and Mediterranean theme nights during weekdays & weekends in Al Rawdha Restaurant is a must-try. A dedicated cafe lounge at Orchid in Lobby is the best hangout.
Beyond Masjid al-Nabawi, Madinah is home to other sacred Islamic sites. You can visit Masjid al-Quba – where Muhammad himself laid the foundation stones – and Masjid al-Qiblatain, where he first changed the direction of prayer towards Makkah.
A small family restaurant called Al Baik is famous across Saudi Arabia for its special fried chicken, made with local herbs and spices. Get there early to avoid a long wait – luckily, at the Crowne Plaza Madinah hotel, you are only three minutes walk away.
