Madinah hotels put visitors in the center of the second-holiest city in the Islamic faith. This is not only where The Prophet Muhammad and his followers began the Islamic faith, but also where the Koran was compiled, and where the first Islamic state was established. In addition, it’s the site of the Islamic University—a school of about 80 percent international students studying predominantly Islamic subjects.
From your hotel in Madinah room you can easily visit some of the beautiful mosques in this historic holy city. The first mosque to be built in the Islam faith is named Masjid Quba, and was constructed by Muhammad and his followers. Another must-see mosque is Masjid Al-Nabwi, one of the most stunning buildings in the city and also the location of the Prophet Muhammad’s burial site.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the etiquette of the culture so that you can respect the local customs when you’re leaving your Madinah hotel room. For example, when traveling through this holy city, you should be quite aware that there are many places where women and non-Muslims may not be allowed.
