Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia's rich history can be appreciated through its many historical religious and cultural sites. In Madinah, visit Al Masjid An-Nabawi (Prophet's Mosque) which was built in 622 by the prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) and is a site of great significance in Islam. To learn about Saudi Arabia's heritage, visit the National Museum in Riyadh where you'll be able to see antiquities from the country's ancient time, pre-Islamic era and Arabian history. The museum's galleries also display an impressive collection of artworks.
