Jiddah: King Fahd's Fountain

The Jiddah fountain, donated to the city by King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz (hence the popular name of King Fahd's Fountain) rises some 853 feet (260 meters) from the sea off Jiddah. This jet of water is the highest of its type in the world and is an unforgettable sight, especially when illuminated at night.
