MADINAH: Madinah Gov. Prince Faisal bin Salman bin Abdulaziz marked the completion of the first phase of construction for King Abdulaziz Square, which is being built on an area of 38,000 square meters in Madinah, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
In honor of the 92nd Saudi National Day, Prince Faisal raised the Saudi flag in the center of the square while a band played the national anthem.
The celebration was attended by the region’s Mayor Fahd bin Mohammed Al-Balishi.
In 2020, the municipality began construction on King Abdulaziz Square, which is located along Al-Ghamama Square, west of the Prophet’s Mosque, between the region’s emirate building, the Anbariya Mosque and the municipality building. Owing to its location, it is one of the most important landmarks in Madinah.
A plaza dedicated to organizing cultural events, pedestrian paths, commercial outlets, resting areas, public service sites and green spaces are all part of the landmark project.
The project aims to improve the area’s human and cultural aspects, broaden the scope of the urban landscape, and create a new outlet for all residents and visitors.
The second phase of the project will be completed within six months
