    The experience is so surreal. It's a fulfilling one for me.

    The place is very clean considering there are lots of pilgrims coming and going every second of the day. Can't imagine the hard work each cleaner or staff put into it to make this place stay as clean as it is. Kudos to each one of them!

    The security personnel are all alert and on the other hand polite in dealing with a lot of different people. They may raise their voices in one or two occasions but that's only to ensure that all protocols in the area is being followed. Salute to all of them!

    There are a lot of pilgrims so you can literally smell their sweat, you can wear mask if you wanted. But some of us didn't bother. We do the tawaf in the morning around 10am, which we observed that the people are less than the afternoon to evening time. Nevertheless, it doesn't matter much as long as you're desire is to perform tawaf wholeheartedly.

    It does not matter what time you do your Tawaf there will always be a rugby match trying to access and kiss it. Unfortunately there is no common sense approach of just allowing those who have accessed it to just leave without trying to wrestle them back and at the same time no order and just lots of pushing for everyone to get access.

    On the plus side the reward is worth it.

    The experience is fulfilling. So wonderful to perform the saī ritual pilgrimage of our Umrah journey.

    There are lots of pilgrims but the place is immaculately clean. Can't imagine all the efforts that the workers putting into it, must be enormous! Hope that all the workers are being paid enough and justly for all of their hard work and kudos to all of them for maintaining the cleanliness of the place.

    This is a tough climb from top to bottom I lost so much water weight on the climb take snacks and water with you cause it’s people there over charging for water and snacks at the top. But once you make it to the top you’ll see why it was worth the climb. The views are phenomenal and the soul humbling climb puts your mental state in a good place. A must go for all Muslims

    In fact, such initiatives from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia provide the guests of God with a rich cultural experience, and we aspire to increase it to be more worthy of the population.
    Mecca and its visitors. Finally, I advise the visitor, whether Umrah or pilgrim, to visit this cultural district, Hira
