Unveiling the World's Highest Prayer Room in Makkah

In a groundbreaking achievement, Makkah has booked its place in the Guinness World Records with the unveiling of the world's highest prayer room. The prestigious title has been bestowed upon the newly inaugurated Sky Mussallah, a celestial sanctuary suspended high above the skyline.


Situated within the renowned Address Jabal Omar Makkah, Sky Mussallah graces the interconnecting bridge that links the hotel's twin towers on floors 36, 37, and 38. Towering at an impressive 483 meters above sea level, this prayer space offers a spiritual retreat like no other.

To access this record-breaking space, one must be a guest at the Address Jabal Omar Makkah Hotel. Sky Mussallah spans an expansive 550 square meters and can host 520 people, providing a serene haven for prayer with an awe-inspiring bird's-eye view of the sacred landmarks of Makkah, including the Holy Kaaba and Masjid al-Haram.


From its elevated vantage point, visitors can marvel at the breathtaking panorama, immersing themselves in the spiritual ambiance. The interiors of Sky Mussallah seamlessly blend traditional Arabic aesthetics with contemporary design. Adorned with intricate Arabic calligraphy, the walls echo the divine "Names of God in Islam," such as Al Muqaddim (The Advancer) and Al Mani (The Shielder and Protector). Arabic letters and verses from the Holy Quran grace the pillars and walls, creating a sacred atmosphere.


Notably, Sky Mussallah clinched its place in history right from its grand opening, securing a Guinness World Record for the "Highest Prayer Room Within a Skybridge." This accolade is a testament to Makkah's commitment to providing a unique and elevated spiritual experience for its visitors.


As Sky Mussallah welcomes guests to partake in prayer, it not only offers a place of worship but also invites them to connect with the divine in an extraordinary setting. Makkah's Sky Mussallah stands as a symbol of innovation and devotion, beckoning travelers to experience spirituality at new heights.
