Al-Masjid al- Haram or the Grand Mosque surrounds Islam’s holiest place the Kaaba.It is located in the city of Mecca and is the largest mosque in the world.Muslims turn toward Kaaba while performing any prayer.One of the Five pillars of Islam requires every Muslim to perform the Hajj pilgrimage ,at least once in his or her lifetime if able to do so including circumambulation of Kaaba.

It was established at the time of Prophet Abraham. the capacity of the mosque is 900,000 and is increased to 4000,000 during Hajj.It has 9 minarets.The height of each is 89 m(292 Feet).

I am hoping to be able to write about the other mosques one at a time.

Allah Hafiz to all of you!
