The note matches with the photo perfectly, but... can be such a place in KSA? Well, I know is a place blessed by God, so meditation and as you said peace of mind can be found there. And I bet that such places were made specially for this... In the world we live in, Taif is soul's rest.
Thnks for sharing!
