“Very easy to walk on and for wheel chair users too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

Did the Saie for 7 rounds, from Safa to Marwa end to end. The floor itself is easy to walk on. Just be extra careful as it might be slippery when descending from each point as the floor might be wet from people spill zam zam water. It has a good ventilation system, and quite cooling as well. Everything is well indicated especially at the part when you need to run a little, there is a green light indicator for it, so you won't miss it. Bring you own small scissors to cut your hair once you are done with your umrah as they might be people scamming you to cut your hair and pay a huge price for a few snips.

“Longer than you might think, but great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

For some reason my thought of saga and marwa was not as far as it actually is. It takes at least 30-45 minutes when you have a good pace. It's nice and a beautiful experience, but get ready for sore feet and body. Especially if doing umrah multiple times. Zamzaam water I'd readily available.

“At ease”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Zam Zam water everywhere... Can stop anytime to take a break & drink Zam Zam.
The flooring is marble... I recommend ladies to put on anti slip socks.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

It's very crowded during umrah starts from March until Hajj. You can look at the stone, that they have already plaster it now. During My Hajj and family 2006 you can touch and feel it.
