Highest fountain ever

This was an easy visit, since my hotel was right on Cornice street, and I could see the fountain from my hotel room!

Great landmark can be seen from fare good location gives the corniche the little extra but only to be seen in the evening would be good to see it during the day

I never miss the opportunity to look at King's fountain whenever I am visiting Jeddah. In the clear nights of Jeddah winter, it gives you a good feeling of comfort and calmness. I don't know why, but I do recommend you to visit.

Jeddah Corniche Fountain (also known as King's Fountain) is supposedly one of the tallest & oldest located toward 'Palestine Street' on Jeddah corniche. Good area for a family outing.

This is supposed to be the tallest water fountain of its type worldwide. It is pretty impressive. The big squirt!

If you want to spend time on south Cornish you will find it at one end of it. Lot of eating joints and hara street for some shopping. The fountain itself is not something that you will find unique or a must visit place.

Well worth a visit! The fountain was particularly impressive at night when there was a full moon. A great place for 'selfie'.
