The epicentre of cultural and religious heritage
Makkah, the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), is a city brimming wth religious symbolism. Apart from being dotted with many monuments of historical significance, it is also a beautiful city with rocky hillsides that would captivate tourists.

Situated in the Sirat Mountains, Makkah has emerged into an important trade and religious centre.
