His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has announced the largest expansion in the history of Masjid Quba in Medina since its establishment in the first year of the Hijra. The project has been named after His Majesty King Salman.
Enriching both religious and cultural experiences for pilgrims, this project embodies the Pilgrim Experience and Quality of Life programs under Vision 2030. The project will expand the existing mosque, coupled with the development and restoration of 57 historical sites. This will enhance the connection among these landmarks and other heritage sites, creating a historic focal point that showcases prophetic monuments, attracts visitors, and enhances the quality of life for the local residents in the process.
The project's positive impact on the local community extends to the enhancement of critical infrastructure, particularly the road network. This improvement will streamline access, reduce congestion, and promote road safety.
The project will contribute to the Kingdom's growth and economic diversification efforts by driving new investments and creating job opportunities.
