The holy cities of Makkah and Madinah are located in Saudi Arabia. Millions of pilgrims travel to these cities each year to worship Allah and offer their prayers. On the other hand, not only are these amazing cities beautiful, but they also have fantastic shopping. Following the completion of the pilgrimage and the ziyarats, one is required to proceed to the marketplace. When going to the Prophet's Mosque, many locals and tourists also go to the Old Bazaar immediately after entering Haram.

It is a conglomeration of thousands of different types of businesses, including shops, restaurants, kiosks, stalls, and street vendors.
