Hundreds and thousands of Muslims from all over the world including around 1.5 lakh Indians will embark on their journey to the Valley of Mina from the holiest Islamic place to mark the beginning of Hajj on Wednesday.

The five-day pilgrimage will culminate with the symbolic stoning of Satan on Sunday. Saudi authorities have made elaborate arrangements for the pilgrims in Mina, where thousands of tents have been set up to host the ‘guests of Allah’.

In the first phase, the pilgrims will spend the night in the tent-city of Mina reciting the Holy Quran or praying. King Salman bin Abdulaziz, who is also Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, has directed agencies concerned to provide all services and facilities so that pilgrims perform their rituals with ease and comfort.
