If I was granted an Umrah/Hajj visa, Can I visit other parts of Saudi Arabia beside Makkah where Umrah/Hajj is performed?

Yes you can, a few years ago Saudi Arabia began to allow this and now people on Umrah/Hajj visas can visit any place in Saudi Arabia and it is not limited to Makkah and Madinah only as it was before.

Just make sure to carry your Hajj/Umrah visa with you.

Yes of course you can, after performing Umrah you can visit Almadina and stays there until your visa expired. May God bless you with visit in the near future!
