Welcome to Swissotel Al Maqam

Local Guide

Makkah is the centre of the religion of Islam. Masjid Al Haram, the holiest mosque in the world and a supreme destination for all Muslims, was built around the holy Kaaba as a sacred enclosure.

The Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah is decreed on every Muslim, who is able to afford this journey of a lifetime forming a spiritual bond between mankind and its Creator. Millions of Muslims descend yearly on the holy city to perform the Hajj and the additional pilgrimage of Umrah. Here you witness the true diversity of cultures and nationalities of the global Muslim community.
The key Makkah landmarks comprise the major sites for pilgrims: Jabal Al-Nour and Jabal Thawr, and the area Al-Jamarat, as well as notable Qasr As-Saqqaf and Qasr Khozam.
