Well of Zamzam
Pilgrims drink from the well of Zamzam, located inside the mosque complex about 60 meters east of the Ka’ba. Muslims believe God caused this spring to well up in answer to the thirst of Hagar and her baby Ismail when they were wandering in the desert. Mardetanha, Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0.
