About Al Awali

Sprawling on the southeastern outskirts of Mecca, Al Awali is a large district packed with residential housing, restaurants and retail stores. It’s dotted with leafy parks and ornate mosques and on the doorstep of the Islamic holy mountain of Jabal Arafat.

Things to do in Al Awali

You can grab a bite to eat at Joha Yiros, feast on Chinese cuisine at Baytoti Alawali or enjoy the sweet treats at the House of Donuts.
