10 Stunning Photos Of The Taif Rose Season In Full Bloom

Article Featured Image

The city of Taif is a sight to behold in the spring months. Taif, perched 1,800 meters above sea level in the Makkah province, is known for its endless rose and flower farms. The mountainous area has a relatively mild climate making it ideal for the beautiful blooms.

Every March and April the Taif rose farms harvest millions of roses, particularly the Damascus rose, to be made into perfume oil, and rose water for cosmetic, medicinal and culinary purposes. The Taif Rose oil is used in Makkah’s Holy Kaaba during Ramadan and other special occasions to cleanse and perfume the structure and mosque.

The Taif Rose is an integral part of the city’s identity, creating tourism and boosting the economy.

Here are 10 photos of the Taif roses in full bloom:
