Although Saudi Arabia is a country known for having the most oil compared to any other place in the world, and as the home to Islam’s holiest shrines in Mecca and Medina, there are some other significant places in this beautiful country to visit and explore.
The Main Mosques
Saudi Arabia has the largest mosques in the world, namely the Al Masjid Al Haram and the Prophet’s Mosque. What is so special about these two mosques is that these are the only two mosques that can accommodate one million people at once.
Jubbah Rock Carvings
Many tourists stay at furnished apartments in Khobar during their visits to Saudi Arabia. If you choose an option from the Ascott the Residence options for your stay, they will make the necessary arrangements to visit this open-air art gallery with some impressive rock carvings.
It’s basically a large fortress representing an empire that was built in 1865. This is surrounded by sand, and you will remember a movie scene when you first see this creation.
The National Museum
The National Museum of Saudi Arabia covers the aspects of Arabian history, culture, and art. It is a state-of-the-art museum with modernist architecture.
