According to eastern folk belief, the tomb of Eve, considered the grandmother of humanity, is located in Jeddah.

According to some accounts, the history of Jeddah dates back to early times before Alexander the Great, who visited the city between 323 and 356 BC.

Other archaeological studies have shown that the area was settled earlier by people in the Stone Age, as some Thamudi scripts were excavated in Wadi Briman (وادي بريمان), east of the city, and Wadi Boweb (وادي بويب), northwest of the city.

Given the city's close proximity to the Red Sea, fishing and seafood dominates the food culture unlike other parts of the country.
