It's amazing how high this fountain can spray and it's well lit for the enjoyment of all. There is a great seating area with or without a meal at the grand Hyatt or on the corniche.

one of the landmarks of Jeddah. enjoy walking on the sea shore looking at it especially during sunset. To my knowledge the engine this fountain operates with came as a gift from the Egyptian army which they used during 1973 war. They used it to bump water into Bar Lev Line and break its defences.
