The Kingdom of the Hejaz and Yemen (Arabic: مملكة الحجاز واليمن) is a sovereign state located in the western and southern part of the Arabian Peninsula. Its capital is Mecca, to which up to five million Muslims travel every year on the Hajj pilgrimage. Despite containing several important holy sites, and despite the strict religious conservatism of its neighbour in Nejd, Hejaz is counted as one of the most open and tolerant countries in the Middle East.
