Makkah is the Holy city of Saudi Arabia where millions of people visit each day particularly for performing pilgrimages such as Hajj, Umrah or just Ziarah. No doubt, the exceptional place in Makkah is the Grand Mosque (Al-Haram), but there are many other places which are apparently able to see and to do. Here we are going to discuss some incredible places which people ignore in unawareness after performing the minor pilgrimage. 

1.    Makkah Auction 

As the name suggests that Makkah auction means mart house where plenty of products come to experience. Makkah Auction is situated in Hilton Tower that is just walking distance from Grand Mosque (Al-Haram). People can experience remarkable ornaments, earliest rings, ancient currency notes and old Islamic coins from different countries and much other fascinating junk. 

It is a really different way of shopping mart where almost all kinds of stuff can be purchased. The materials are displayed in such flourishing ways that people attract and compel to surprise to someone dear by getting them. If you also want to gift dear one, so you must take one-stop travel umrah specials after performing the pilgrimage. Truly, sometimes there is much competition of richness in the mart but mostly you might end up with a pretty good deal. 

2.    Makkah Mall

There are several malls in the city of Makkah but the most popular one that you should visit, so it is the Makkah Mall.  Since it is located very near to Al-Haram, that’s why pilgrims easily find it to visit thoroughly where they experience most of the reputed brand stores in this mall. The most considerable thing is that pilgrims can get almost all kinds of expensive stuff at a very cheap cost. The Mall is not just a business spot but also devoted by offering a convenient prayer area as well as playing area for kids. In short, Makkah Mall is a comprehensive family shopping mall.

3.    Al-Kiswa Factory 

Al Kiswa Factory in Makkah has valued a visit; as this is where the Kiswa or the fabric that curtains the Kaabah is made. The Kiswa of the Kaabah has changed on the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah every year. And devotees visiting the Kiswa Factory observing how the Kiswa is made and see the selected men embroider gold inscription into black silk fabric. If you want to see the blessed Ghilaf then avail umrah packages November 2020 which offer to visit Al-Kiswa factory. The practice of making the Kiswa takes nearly 8 to 10 months and once completed, so the new Kiswa is handed over to the Masjid Al Haram administrators. Located at walking distance, there is a museum known as the “Exhibition on Buildings of two Harams” which is adjacent to the Factory.

4.    Islamic Museum

Islamic Museum is sited some walking distance from Masjid Al Haram in old Jeddah road. The factory of Kaswa e Kaaba is just a short distance. Similarly, Hujratu Shareefa is just walking away from this display center. Pilgrims who visit the preparation of Ghilaf e Kaabah in the Kaswa factory, obviously visit the museum as this is located very nearby it. People get the history of Islamic and Pre-Islamic events exhibiting the artifacts which are well-kept-up by the Saudi Government. The museum is one of the best tourist fascinations which charms people to show them the remote beauty of wonderful panoramic views.
