Hejaz Railway Station

Established in 1900 with the main purpose of creating a connection between the capital of the Ottoman Empire and Hejaz, the site of the holiest shrines of Islam and the holy city of Makkah, Hejaz Railway Station's main objective was to facilitate transportation for Muslim worshippers and pilgrims instead of camel caravans. Today, the station has become a tourist destination that features a memorial to symbolise its historical importance.
