The Valley of Mina

Mina (Also known as the Tent City) is situated 5 kms to the east of Mecca. There are more than 100,000 air-conditioned tents which provide temporary accommodation to pilgrims. In the Valley of Mina is the Jamarat Bridge, the location of the Stoning of the Devil ritual. At the start of Hajj, pilgrims go to Mina on 8th of Zilhija and  spend their first night there. Their next night stay is at Muzdalfa and then next two nights stay is again in Mina.
