IN PICTURES: Snow turns this Mecca town into ‘bride wearing her white dress’
The Maysan governorate in Mecca turned into a picturesque scene as snow fell on its green lands following a slew of rains, prompting several social media users to name it “a bride wearing her white dress”.
Many avid photographers documented the view, as the cold weather helped keep the sheet of snow covering trees, valleys and mountains from melting.
Maysan hosts a number of famous mountains and dozens of villages. It is also known for having farms of fruit, vegetables including grapes, cucumbers, pomegranates and tomatoes.
Photographer Sultan al-Rubaiy shared these exclusive pictures with Al Arabiya English showcasing the snow-clad area.
