Solaie Mountain (Johaineh Mount)

Solaie Mountain is the nearest one to the Holy Prophet's Mosque , only about 500 meters away. It is part of the formations of Selaa Mountain. Some of the Arab tribes, like Bani Aslam, inhabited this mountain at the time of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h). Then it was inhabited by the tribe of Johainah. That is why it was named after them. The biggest fortress known as Bab Alshami fortress was build on that mountain during the reign of the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the First (1520-1566 A.D.).
