ZamZam, Mecca: 4 reviews and 8 photos


The entire area around the Mosque and the the two hills of Safa and Marwah now contain a few hundred outlets where you can obtain the water of Zam Zam.
Originally there was a well, however the King Fahd moved this during the restoration and modernisation of the Mosque. You will now find hundreds of cooler tanks dotted on all floors all over the mosque, as well as taps, and drinking fountains around the mosque which all pump out billions of litres of Zam Zam every year.
Zam Zam water is also provided in the mosque of Medina now too. ( The prophets mosque).
Zam Zam, according to tradition of the Prophet (PBUH), is the best water on both heaven and earth. So its extremely significant to Muslims.
If you research enough you will also find some more amazing facts about the Zam Zam water on the net.
The picture shows one of the main halls from one of the main wings of the mosque. The coloums used to support the structure, are where the cooler tanks are kept., full of Zam Zam water.

Address: Around the Great Mosques in Makkah and in Medina.
