The ‘Mushrooms’ of The Nabawi

The “Mushrooms’ of The Nabawi refer to the ‘umbrellas’ placed at the open spaces of the Al Masjid An Nabawi or commonly known as The Nabawi Mosque or The Prophet’s Mosque, in Madinah, Saudi Arabia.

The mosque is considered as the second holiest site in Islam, after Masjid Al Haram or commonly known as the Grand Mosque of Mecca, with the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem the third holiest.

The ‘mushrooms’ of the Nabawi will open to provide much-needed shade in the afternoon, whilst at night and in the mornings, it will be kept ‘closed’.
