26445 Indians, including Malayalees arrived in Saudi Arabia to make the Hajj pilgrimage from Mecca. There are currently 23,919 people in Madinah, and 2,526 at Makkah. The first Umrah is when Pilgrims reached Mecca via Meedana, through the Central Hajj Committee.
The deregulation has led to more Umrah by pilgrims. After visiting the Prophet’s Mosque, historical sites and other historic sites, Pilgrims will arrive directly in Madinah to reach Makkah the 8th. All pilgrims from Madinah will reach Makkah for Hajj on the 28th. After the Hajj, pilgrims from Jeddah will be able to visit Madinah.
