Many years ago all religion were allowed in Mecca. Maybe in the future it will be again like in the past.
Agreed; I've been to the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Baha'i Gardens, the Vatican Gardens, the papal tombs under St. Peter's Cathedral, the Sistine Chapel, etc. and no one asked or cared that I was an atheist. They just expected me to give the appropriate level of deference to the religion and the solemnity with which it views a holy place, which I am glad to do. I just kinda have a thing for historical religious sites.

Besides, last I checked, atheism is not a communicable disease.

The hight of the old render is more appropriate as well.

There were rumours that they were going to add 2 more 350m+ towers beside the Hotel tower behind the back towers. LOL if that makes any sense. I think "Dream" should have more information if that's going to happen.
