Constructed on the coast of the Red Sea, the majestic mosque appears to be floating as it is built on pillars. The beautiful white mosque is a must-see for those visiting the city of Jeddah. The mosque is fully functional and is used by many for prayers along with those who are just visiting. Masjid Al Rahma uses a mix of traditional architecture and modern technology, and is equipped with all the necessary facilities (prayer area, wudhu facilities, etc).
