Pilgrims cast stones at Jamarat on first day of Tashreeq

MINA — On the second day of Eid Al-Adha, the first day of Tashreeq, pilgrims in Mina embarked on the ritual of throwing stones at the Jamarat, which entails throwing pebbles at three pillars.

The throwing ritual starting with Jamarat Al-Oula (the small pillar), continuing with Jamarat Al-Wusta (the middle pillar) and finally Jamarat Al-Aqaba (the large pillar), following in the footsteps of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

Multiple pathways were designated across the various floors of the Jamarat facility to ensure a smooth flow of pilgrims and manage the crowd.

This innovative, multi-level structure was engineered to distribute pilgrims efficiently during the throwing ritual.

Pedestrian bridges connect the Jamarat to the Al-Mashaaer Al-Mugaddassah Metro Line and surrounding pilgrim camps in Mina, facilitating safe and convenient movement. — BERNAMA-SPA
