A modern minaret tops the structure of a rebuilt mosque on the site once occupied by one of the oldest mosques in Jeddah. One of the many sobriquets given the city in the distant past was "Jeddah of the Thousand Mosques." I'm not certain that count was an exaggeration: during prayer call, one could nearly go deaf from the chanting of hundreds of muezzins calling the faithful to prayer five times a day.
