Makkah al-Mukarramah, also known as Mecca, is the holiest city for nearly two billion Muslims in the world. Millions of people visit Makkah each year to perform the Hajj (annual pilgrimage) as well as to perform Umrah (optional) throughout the year.
The heart of Makkah is the holy Ka'aba which is surrounded by Al Masjid al-Haram (the Great Mosque of Mecca). Both the Hajj and Umrah requires circumambulating (Tawaf) around the holy Kaaba counterclockwise.
