Owner description: In the Muslim religion, Muhammad received his first revelation from God on this mountain.
Reviewed 26 September 2016

In the Muslim religion, Prophet Muhammad received his first revelation from God on this mountain. Its very hard to climb the mountain though there is stairway. takes almost 1.5 to 2 hours to climb to the top. Once you reach at the top Holy kaba can be seen from the mountain , also there are some shops who sells water , juice fruits etc on your way to top.

The popular spot is above on the hill with so many rocks. There was stairs to walk but because so many people at that time we choose to climb between the rocks.
