Saudi Arabia to Develop 100 Historical Sites in Holy Cities

Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah announced that the government plans to renovate and improve over 100 historical sites in the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah. This initiative is part of the Kingdom's efforts to enhance the experience of pilgrims and visitors to these sacred sites.

“The ministry, in coordination and cooperation with partners from several agencies, will work to develop these historical sites with high quality and standard. The Doyof of Al-Rahman Program works to develop the experiences of the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims, making it rich and unforgettable experiences in Makkah and Madinah,” he said. The Doyof Al Rahman Program is a Saudi Vision 2030 initiative that brings together 70 public, private, and non-profit organizations to improve the experience of Hajj and Umrah pilgrims and visitors.


At a program titled "Partners" in Makkah on Monday, Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah announced plans to develop over 100 historical sites in Makkah and Madinah. He also announced the launch of an electronic platform for booking tickets to visit these sites, including Hira Cave. “God has blessed our country with a great honor, which is serving the Two Holy Mosques and the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims. Makkah and Madinah have a great history and Muslims are eager to know about it,” he said.
