    Along the Prince Faisal Bin Fahad Street, right at the back of Hilton and Sheraton Hotels is a display of several monuments called the Open-air monuments museum.

    In the middle of the road which is also a small park of sort, you'll find a collection of various monuments of interest like prayer beads, luggages, handy tools, giant faucet, aladdin's lamp, birthday cake, etc.

    The Giant Lanterns

    Decorative monument in Jeddah city are characterized with unique design, size and level. The glass lanterns are a revival of the models of lighted lamps located in middle of old mosques... They are the world's largest glass formations. Each one is different in style from the other.

    Graceful sculpture ....

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    graceful but strange

    Its a bird , no its a plane . no its superman ...

    My first impression is that they are two beautiful birds ..but when I look again it doesnt reallly look like one

    Well at least thats what I thought it to be , but I am not really sure what its supposed to be ? well cant say much about abstract art , can we ?

    I guess the good thing about abstract art is that they can be interpreted in a million ways ...the sculture / picture is alive !

    Trees are everywhere! Truly I had a hard time
    taking pictures of some squares while
    driving due to coconut trees.

    This square should represent a victorious
    horse.

    Sadaf Sq.

    As I said lots of trees would make beauty but

    This Square should represent a huge shell.
