Madinah's local attractions
Madinah is the home to the second holiest site in Islam (the Al-Masjid an-Nabi) and is considered one of the holiest cities in Islam. To enter Madinah you need to be a Muslim; once there, you will be able to visit its many impressive mosques, holy sites and the UNESCO protected world heritage site, the Madain Saleh Tombs.
The AL-Madina Museum exhibits text paintings, maps showing the archaeological sites of Al Ula, models, photographs, heritage items and more. There is decent shopping and some bazaars but the city is primarily known for its religious significance.
