The city of tranquility and no one has ever said otherwise. The difference between Medina and Mecca is like night and day. I would always suggest going to Mecca first and then Medina.

It is a mosque but the history is very rich at this place. One needs a local guide to tell the actual history behind this place and the Battle of Badr which was just behind this mosque and there is a dried well near the small mounds.

When you pray there, just try to conceive our prophet prayed in that very place. The mosque is called masjid Al-areesh. This is the place where Muslims constructed a shade for the prophet used as command center for the great battle of Badr. Like all other historic sites, there are no tours neither tour guides, but locals are friendly and... More
