At 312 meters high, King Fahd’s Fountain is the tallest in the world, according to Guinness World Records. It ejects an 18-ton plume of water into the air from its location off Al-Hamra Corniche and is visible from all over Jeddah.
Fed by saltwater from the Red Sea, King Fahd's Fountain represents one of the tallest fountains in the world, shooting into the sky a single plume of water.
Visible across Jeddah, the fountain was completed in 1985, donated to the city by King Fahd. The iconic landmark is visible from many vantage points, but remains most impressive when viewed from the shoreline. Head to the water's edge and see the sheer force of the single fountain jet, lit up as the sun goes down for that picture-perfect moment.
