Masjid Qiblatain (also known as The Masjid of Two Qiblas), is in Medina, KSA. This Masjid has historical importance as it's here when Qibla direction was asked to change from Jerusalem to Mecca. Must visit place for ultimate relaxation & peaceful ambiance.

This is another historical mosque whereby during a prayer, Prophet pbuh got a message to change the direction of qiblah from Al Aqsa to Kaaba.

Once you enter this mosque, you would have the feelings of total surrender to Allah SWT. You would have thirst to know more about Islam and its values in our lives.

This mosque marked the place where Muslims changed the kiblah due to the mockery by the jahiliah. Allah showed mercy to the Muslims to avoid being mocked

We visited the mosque just before start of Hajj days. The van was parked quite far from the prayer area and escalators were present to go towards ladies prayer area. Therefore, it was not convenient for old age, weak or sick females to go and pray there. Stalls were present outside selling cold water, juices, snacks and dates etc.
