Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 8, 2014

This is Masjid Qiblatain (Mosque of the Two Qiblas). It is historically important to Muslims as this is where in Rajjab 2 AH the revelation of the Quran came to change the direction of the Qibla from Bait-al-Maqdis in Jerusalem to the Ka’bah in Makkah.
Fantastic architecture and Peaceful atmosphere

It is a place where your beliefs are refreshing and makes you stronger inside where you can close to religion. If you can must visit these kind of places in Madina Al Munawra

First, I am non-Muslim. But while driving through Medina I stopped to see this historically important mosque. Everyone was friendly and welcomed me in, even showing me the alcove facing Mecca as well as pointing out the direction towards al-Quds (Jerusalem).

This is the actual masjid where the revelation to change the qibla was revealed, making it a very unique place. Historically, it is also very old and is architecturally interesting. Another must visit location for any stay in Medina.

Was great to finally pray in this mosque - the same mosque where our prophet prayed and was instructed by the Almighty to change the qiblah (direction of prayer) from Jerusalem to Makkah.
