The Three Stone Pelting Pillars in Mina

An important part of the Hajj, Jamarat is the group of three stone pillars that are pelted by the pilgrims emulating Prophet Ibrahim (AS). The pillars represent the three locations where Ibrahim (AS) pelted stone at Shaitan when he tried to dissuade him from sacrificing his son. The three pillars named Jamarat-al-Oola or Jamarat-e-Sughra (first or the small Jamarat), Jamarat-al-Wusta (middle Jamarat) and Jamarat-al-Uqbah or Jamarat-Al Kubra (last or the largest Jamarat) have now been replaced with high walls of Jamarat to avoid accidents. A bridge has also been constructed for the pilgrims to easily perform the ritual.
