This is the highest salt water fountain in the world. It is placed in the red sea. The base is like a Oud burner stand. A spectacular view from the Corniche during the day or night :D

The place is like about 1 kilometer away from the viewpoint. It’s the tallest fountain in the whole world. I like it more during night time coz the fountain is illuminated. The name is taken from the donor of the fountain “King Fahad”.
