Two special sites on this visit. The narrow sandy and rocky road will lead you straight to the site of the Muslim community and their lovely mosque. Groups can arrange a tour. I think that would be very informative and enjoyable. Look for the "office" to the right of the parking lot for general directions. I found a warm welcome... More

We received directions that underestimated the length of the road to the turnoff at the gates (really about 3 miles). It's a gentle, easy hike even for someone with a problematic knee. Wildflowers bloomed all around us, little lizards zipped by, and birds coasted silently overhead. Totally peaceful.

Small, isolated, quietly beautiful...near the Plaza Blanca and worth a stop if you are in the area. Built by the Saudis, the mosque today is used for various programs...but all the features (including lovely tile work and the foot baths) of a larger building are here.

The directions on the website were helpful, as it is several miles off the main... More

I can't tell when the mosque is open from its website. When we pulled up, the gate was down, so we parked by the road and walked in. It's about a mile walk to the mosque from the road in full sunlight (no shade), but I don't mind the sun and the scenery is breathtaking.

I've never been to a place so beautiful. Just being in this area takes you to do a different level of peace and spirituality, Looking forward to visiting again.
