Jabal Thawr (Arabic: جبل ثور) (Mount Bull) is the name of a mountain in Saudi Arabia, located in the lower part of Mecca to the south of the district of Misfalah. Height of the mountain is 1,405 m (4,610 ft).
The mountain is notable for housing a cave known as Ghar Sawr (Cave of Sawr), in which the Islamic Prophet Muhammad took refuge from the Quraysh, during the migration to Medina. For most Muslims, the cave is of religious significance, and is thus visited by many pilgrims and the tourists.
