- The Jamarat pillars are located in the city of Mina, just east of Mecca.
The hajj is a series of rituals meant to cleanse the soul of sins and instill a sense of equality and brotherhood. All able-bodied Muslims are required to perform the hajj once in their lives.
The final days of hajj coincide with Eid al-Adha, or the "Feast of Sacrifice." The holiday is celebrated by Muslims around the world to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim's test of faith.
