I saw it from a distance at the Corniche. Picturesque.
Look out for the fountain from above while landing at the airport

“Lovely views in the late afternoon and after dark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The King's Fountain, at the beginning of the Corniche, is a Jeddah landmark which has been there for 30 years (that's a long time for Saudi Arabia!). It serves as a beacon as one's aircraft arrives in Jeddah from Europe and the US - it isn't something one 'visits', however, like the Statue of Liberty or Big Ben. Rather, it is there along the Corniche spraying SKY- HIGH day and night. I lived in Jeddah for 8 years, and return regularly - the King's Fountain is great!

“Beatifull and Tall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Best viewed at night, with the new refurbished cornich you can stride a walk for many killometres. Prepare for a photo at sunset. It's wonderful.
