Marking the final ritual of the hajj, Muslim pilgrims circled Islam’s holiest site along socially distanced paths on Sunday.
Muslims observed strict social distancing as Saudi authorities sought to prevent a coronavirus outbreak.
Only up to 10,000 Muslims took part in the hajj.
This is far from the 2.5 million who took part in the five-day annual pilgrimage last year.
On the final day of hajj, pilgrims in mask threw pebbles at a wall symbolising Satan in Mina.
Unlike in past years where they gather the pebbles themselves, hajj authorities handed them bagged and sterilised pebbles to protect against the novel coronavirus.
Pilgrims returned to the Grand Mosque in Mecca later Sunday to perform a final ‘tawaf’, or circling of the Kaaba.
