Al-Hijaz Railroad
You will witness the true meaning of solidity in the formation and foundation of this railway, which tells the tales and adventures it has experienced. The establishment of the Hijaz railroad was ordered by the Ottoman Sultan. The line connects Damascus with Al-Medina Al-Munawrah. It was established to facilitate the movement of pilgrims to Makkah. This railway continued to be used for nine years. It has strengthened commerce between the north and the south and stopped later due to the wars. However, its stations remained as archeological landmarks scattered throughout Saudi cities and regions.
