Where all religions are welcome and can access to Saudi Arabia , because the only Mecca Mecca for Muslims only allowed to enter , and this is in place before Saudi Arabia to be found , "It is sacred ." Tourist Visa existed and easy but has been shut off and work on the development of tourism and return visa after the completion of the development of tourism .

Haji is currently going on and plus its Friday so its consider the weekend of the Muslim world. Today and yesterday and the next couple of days are considered to be some of the most important days of the year to Muslims and they are building this in a country that is 90% plus Muslim so everyone is off to observe the next couple of days.



Most of the international visitors that come to Saudi Arabia is for the Haji. So the visitor numbers fluctuate depending the time of the year. If Saudi Arabia had better requirements and it didnt take for ever to get a visa, I bet more people would do business and travel there.

We always go out of track here and this is actually show how some of the people on 2015 still have hard time accepting other people cultures and at the very same time they pretend to be "open minded" i have no words actually but i just want to tell all of you an advice: in general if you want to argue about some cultures or religions just save your time because at the end you can't change it

we also can communicate here, and i think its great when peoples from different countries and religions can chat, share their opinions etc. (without argue of course). And yes, sometimes it becomes disrespectful, whats sad But admins, as ive noticed, keeping the discussion in right way, thanks them for this!

Looking at the structure through the live cameras, it seems there will be a new level quite soon...

BTW, 100m isn't even the tenth of its height and it's still below it AND LOOKS LIKE THIS ??

The Shard Baby, are you so sure about the current height ???

If you're right, things are starting to get really interesting here ..

Sorry I was wrong , this is what happens when I don't keep my diagrams updated. 4 A-levels is a lot of work and my school work and personal study has been taking up a lot of my time recently, which explains why I haven't released a diagram in more than a month. I hope to release a series of special progress update diagrams soonish - but there is no guarantee I'll be able to do this anytime soon. My Kingdom Tower diagrams can take about an hour or longer, especially if I haven't maintained them for a while.

The actual current height is 94.13 metres.

Yes, at the risk of being flamed, this project seems to be moving ahead at a snail's pace. Like, 1 floor per month? I don't recall the Burj Khalifa being this slow at the same stage of construction.
