King Fahad's Fountain, seen in Jeddah on the western coast of Saudi Arabia, bears its name because King Fahad gave it to the city. King Fahad's Fountain, built between 1980 and 1983 and made public in 1985, is the largest of its kind in the world, reaching a maximum water height of 853 feet, higher than the Eiffel Tower without the antenna. 

Viewing the fountain won't seem difficult, no matter how far away you are.

It's impossible to describe the hypnotic sight of the water changing colors as it flies into the night sky. Over 500 lights incorporated into the fountain's design give it its most fabulous appearance after dusk. 

Since most people arrive there after sunset, you may quickly obtain an excellent perspective point if you can go there shortly before sundown. Additionally, you can view the sun sinking over the ocean as you feel the calming effects of the fountain's small water droplets caressing your skin.
