Amazing view. Enjoy the pleasure of Nature. Must visit. World's tallest fountain ever. Looks so so beautiful. We used to have a glance at it everyday as it was right in front of our apartment.

Well not much to see really, the hydraulics behind it it is pretty amazing in size and power, but apart from that a bit dull. I would not drive there if I did not understand physics.

I stayed in the Intercontinental Hotel in April 2015 and my room had a good view of the fountain which is a wonderful view to see especially during sunset.

This fountain is visible from a long distance and has become a trademark of Jeddah city. During the sunset it looks marvellous. Also during the late evening it can be seen which you drive by. This place is worth visiting
