Are non-Muslims allowed to visit Mecca? I mean, stay in those giant hotels and such? It's interesting architecture but the whole place is so focused around that one thing, I wonder if there's restrictions.

Mecca is one of 2 cities that are muslim-only... (has been for 1400 years before Saudi Arabia was formed)

Any place that requires such a ridiculous concept as converting to a religion just to be able to visit it isn't worth it at all. I guess Mecca will be a place I will never, ever visit (and nothing of value was lost).

Are there like... checkpoints around the city? How is that enforced?

I mean, I'm extremely white, so it's not like I could sneak in anyway. Just wondering.

It's a shame because I'd really like to see it one day. From a purely architectural standing it's a wonder.

I didn't mean to imply white people can't be Muslims. I meant to say that being white would probably make it more difficult to blag my way inside. Especially considering I would literally have ulterior motives. It's just a comment on scrutiny.
