11 Breathtaking Photos of Hajj Season This Year

Over two million Muslims began pilgrimage in Mecca yesterday.

At the peak of this year's hajj season today, in which two million Muslim Pilgrims have made their way to Mecca, a collection of aerial and ground-level shots capturing the pilgrims' rituals at Mount Arafat were released by the Associated Press, European Pressphoto Agency and Agence France-Press. After leaving Mount Arafat by sunset today, the pilgrims will perform the evening prayer in the nearby Muzdalifah area, before waking up early tomorrow for the ritual of devil stoning and sacrificing animals. Here are the 11 most stunning photos from Mount Arafat earlier today:
