Wonderful to climb Mt Arafat on any day other than the proper hajj days. It’s more convenient, relaxing and not so many crowding hajjis or persons going up and down the jabal Arafat.

Beautiful mosque and must visit during hajj. Try to gather by noon so you can get a good place to sit and listen to khutba hajj and offer prayers. Do bring water and umbrella as it is hot during the hajj day
