(CNN) -- [Updated 3 p.m. Monday, November 7] Thousands of Muslims gather in Mina, near the holy city of Mecca, to take part in one of the final rituals of the Hajj pilgrimage.

In the Jamarat ritual, pilgrims throw pebbles at stone pillars that symbolize Satan. According to Muslim traditions, it is a re-enactment of when Abraham stoned the devil and rejected his temptations.

Every Muslim is expected to make the Hajj pilgrimage at least once in their lives if they are healthy and can afford to. A full explanation of the Hajj can be seen in this video.

Credit goes to "Irukieh" and "alexanderyou" for being the first readers to chime in with the correct answer in our photo challenge.

[Original post] Do you know where this photo was taken?

If you think you know the answer -- or if you just want to take a wild guess -- post it in the comments area below. Later in the day, we'll reveal where the photo was taken and give credit to those who figured it out first. (The more detail, the better!)

Each Monday morning, we'll post a new photo and challenge you to tell us its origin. The photo might be related to a prominent news story or theme -- or it might just be something that caught our eye.

Good luck!
