Madinah is the second holy city in Saudi Arabia after Makkah and is 420 kilometers away from Makkah. We went to Madinah in a government operated bus (SAPTCO) and spent couple of days there staying in a hotel room. The temperaturte here was more scorching than in Makkah and we ended up spending more time in room than outside.
We visited all the important places here like Al-Masjid al-Nabawi, Shuhada of Uhud where the martyrs of Uhud Battle are buried, and few other historical sites and mosques.
Like most other cities in Saudi, Madinah also have lots of Keralites and some streets were having shop sign boards in Malayalam as well besides Arabic and English.
