Its one of a kind fountain. One needs to read the history and background to appreciate it. The tallest fountain in the world.

It's amazing by just sitting there and watching the fountain and you can keep doing this for ours. It's a masterpiece of engineering and art together thinking of every detail while you are sitting there and admiring the work done here... Jeddah made its monument worth visiting!!!

I was told that its the tallest sea fountain in the world. I saw people sitting there and hanging out with family and friends. Its worth a visit if you're in Jeddah even for just one day.

It is very nice at night, the view and the fresh air from the sea. It is very big the fountain. Not fare from the fountain is the prince palace.

The King's Fountain (also called King Fahad Fountain or Jeddah Fountain) rises as high as a thousand feet above the Red Sea. A nice spectacle at night while doing a leisurely walk by the sea when it is illuminated.

Nice place, but it only Works after 6 pm. There is not a lot of things to do in this town, so this should be visited.
