What is actually behind the steel gates at Prophet Muhammad's Grave (PBUH) in Medina?

Is it visible if I look through the steel gates?

I heard it is so secure with concrete wall around the Prophet Muhammad's grave (PBUH) even saudi King cant access it.

  • For the record, now people cannot get close to this steel gate as shown in the picture. There is a concrete barrier (~3' high) and some security personals, making sure that no one can get close. This is only for ordinary people. – Farhan Dec 4 '13 at 14:31

Behind the gold mesh and black curtains are the graves of the prophet Mohammad, Abu Bakr, and Umar Ibn Al-Khattab. Because of the curtains you cannot actually see the graves, and no photos exist that I know of. The grave was first walled off during the reign Umar.
