Today’s hajj is very different from hajj in the past. Everything has vastly changed; from how the holy cities looked like to transportation facilities.
These photos of hajj date back to 1953. Many may not have been born when these pictures were taken.
Enjoy watching these interesting pictures and realize how lucky we are with the modern time facilities that make the Hajj journey much easier for us, despite the recent restrictions imposed on Hajj due to the pandemic.
