Known in ancient times as Yathrib, this important caravan stop is now out of bounds to all non-Muslims. We have not been able to obtain any pictures or clear information about the state or preservation of the archeological ruins in Medina. Today Medina is a modern city, but all non-Muslims must drive around the city.
