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”.

Go at night when it is cool and the lights are on. Beware that google maps does not show the new road construction or the closures near the palace. You will probably have to go down to the flag roundabout and backtrack.
