Masjid Al Haram

Masjid al-Haram ( ٱَلْمَسْجِدُ ٱلْحَرَامُ,), also known as the Grand Mosque or the Great Mosque of Mecca,  is a mosque enclosing the vicinity of the Kaaba in Mecca, in the Mecca Province of Saudi Arabia. It is a site of pilgrimage in the Hajj, which every Muslim must do at least once in their lives if able, and is also the main phase for the ʿUmrah, the lesser pilgrimage that can be undertaken any time of the year. The rites of both pilgrimages include circumambulating the Kaaba within the mosque. The Great Mosque includes other important significant sites, including the Black Stone, the Zamzam WellMaqam Ibrahim, and the hills of Safa and Marwa.
