Safa and Marwa (صفا و مروة) are the names of two mountains in Mas'a while the pilgrims cover the distance in between seven times during hajj. With the expansion in the area of al-Masjid al-Haram, Mas'a and al-Masjid al-Haram are now connected together. It is 394.5 meters long and 20 meters wide, with its first and second floors respectively 12 and 9 meters high. At present, some part of Safa mountain still remains but a major part of the Marwa mountain was eliminated during 1995 CE developments and now, merely the part where the pilgrims can see remains.
