Highest Mountain in the World!

You can see the fountain from almost anywhere in Jeddah, but a walk on the Corniche is highly recommended.

Located at red sea and can be seen from nearby beach park. It must see place at Jeddah and also enjoy your long walk (2KM one way) along the beach park

The fountain is one of Jeddah marks which is used to identify it. Every one visits Jeddah should see it. It can be seen from a distance, but seeing close look is different.

It's just a fountain. Nothing special to make a separate visit. Ok if u r around the area. Corniche is newly built around it.

We were returning from our umrah and had a few hours to spare before our return flight. Our 6 year old definitely enjoyed the corniche and the views of the fountain. It's mesmerizing for the kids. Time well spent. The kiddie playground near by is another plus! Glad to have visited the worlds tallest fountain!
