The Grand Mosque
As its name suggests, The Grand Mosque is the only biggest mosque around the whole world, and Muslims from around the world, no matter which corner come and visit this mosque in expectations of their Allah’s blessings.

Mina is a town inside of Mecca spread across fifteen kilometers and is made out of only tents. You can find no proper mud or concrete structure whatsoever. Everyone in this town lives inside these tents, and they consider this as a punishment from their Allah. It is believed by the folks that if any person does something which is wrong in their Allah’s eyes, they have to swear off luxury and live in tents to gain Allah’s forgiveness. When you will enter the town, both the sides will be covered with tents, the left ones act as street markets and the right ones is that of the citizens.
