Welcome to Hejaz

Meaning ‘barrier’, the Hejaz region's name is taken from the huge escarpment that separates it from the great plateaus of the interior. Home of the hajj, the Hejaz has witnessed hundreds of years of cultural and ethnic mixing as caravans, boats, and briefly even trains, brought pilgrims from all over the world here. Inevitably some stayed, a fact etched on the faces the region's residents, who are among the most ethnically diverse in the Kingdom.
