Bab al-Umrah

The Umrah gate (باب العمرة) is located directly to the west of Ka'ba, on the north-western corner of the Mataf area. Bab al-Umrah is one of the five main entrances into the old compound of Masjid al-Haram.

circa 100 CE

The Umrah Gate was renovated circa 2018/19 CE during the King Abdullah Expansion. The previous gate, built during the second Saudi expansion was demolished and re-built on the same design of bab al-Malik. The Ka'bah, located to the east, is directly visible from this gate.
