World's Highest Fountain

The highest fountain of the world is located in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The Jeddah Fountain, also known as King Fahd's Fountain is one of the most striking landmarks of the city of Jeddah. It measures a staggering 312 meters. It is powered by two 3.5MW multistage centrifugal pumps, which deliver 1,250 litres per second. The water leaves the 126 mm nozzles at 42 bar (609.16 PSI) and at the incredible speed of 375 km/h.
