See the Jeddah Fountain at night
As the desert sun turns from pale gold to burnished bronze the majestic plume of the world's tallest fountain soars into the evening sky. The fountain pulls 18 tons of salt water straight from the Red Sea at speeds of up to 233 miles per hour. But the effect of King Fahd's Fountain is one of peace and tranquillity and it is a powerful symbol of the unity between the two life forces of sun and water. The fountain is lit spectacularly at night and is visible from all around Jeddah.
